Create a new version of a record

Hi All,

 

So, i'm stuck!, i'm trying to create a basic documentation register, where people can login, fill in the document details and a document number is generated based on the input, which i can do, however, if the document changes and new version is issued, how do i create a new version, without typing in all of the detail again, i.e. retrieve the record, change the date and version and save as a new record?

 

ive tried opening in edit mode, and saving as new record, but nothing i seem to do works... any help greatly appreciated,

 

many thanks in advance

Re: Create a new version of a record

Hi pjharte,

 

You said that “fill in the document details and a document number is generated based on the input”, how are you doing this?


And about this “if the document changes and new version is issued”, do you mean that the document is updated on the destination where it located?


I would like to know more details about your scenario.

 

Best regards,

Re: Create a new version of a record

Hi Mabel,

 

Sorry for the late reply, im concatinating the fields together ie,

 

"PO-"& ThisItem.Organisation &"-"& ThisItem.Group &"-"& ThisItem.Document_ID_Ref

 

would give me eg. PO-COMM-PSO-000001

 

In a datacards Default field.

 

The change to a document would be external to powerapps, im using powerapps purely as the document register to tarck and record the latest status/version of issued docs (hope that makes sense).

 

best regards
