Create row items from a gallery using checkbox



I have created a gallery with a checkbox for each items in the gallery list.

The idea is that the checkbox is used to select the items (it can be multiple!). 
Once selected there will be a button to duplicate the selected items. Also, I am using dataverse as my datasource.

Below is a snippet of my code,

ClearCollect(RecordsToCopy, DropColumns(BudgetMonthRecord.'Forecast Items',"_ownerid_value","createdby","modifiedby"));

// collect new records into collections
Collect(NewRecords, RecordsToCopy);
Patch('Forecast Items', NewRecords);



I wanted to create a collection for only the selected item. Would appreciate the help for this!

Hey @anonymia25 ,


Please use below code to filter selected item from gallery. Please note that schema in collection and Dataverse table should be identical in terms of column names.


// collect selected records in gallery into collections
ClearCollect(collectionName, Filter(Gallery.AllItems,Checkbox.Value = true))

//Use Patch / Collect to create items
Patch('Forecast Items', NewRecords);


Hi @Ashwin7104 ,

I tried your solution, and this would be use in the onSelect property of the button, yes?
Unfortunately the item is not created and I am not sure what went wrong for this?

// collect selected records in gallery into collections
ClearCollect(RecordsToCopy, Filter(ForecastGallery.AllItems, Checkbox1.Value = true));

// collect new records into collections
Collect(NewRecords, RecordsToCopy);

// create the new records in batch
Patch('Forecast Items', NewRecords);


Hi @anonymia25 ,


You can try below formula if it helps your requirement. 


ForAll(Filter(ForecastGallery.AllItems,Checkbox1.Value = true), Patch('Forecast Items'),Defaults('Forecast Items'),{ColumnName: ThisRecord.CollectionColumnName,.....})
