Data card is not entering data to the Sharepoint list


I am building a survey app where each person on the survey would submit answers and they would get updated to the Sharepoint list. The features of the app include dropdown lists which work all the time. However, one item is an open ended question and requires a data card to function so the user would fill in the answer themselves.

The data card works only once during the editing stage of PowerApps editor. When I would try to fill in the same data card outside of PowerApps editor it stops working: I could fill the data in, but submission would not register anything at all and the Sharepoint List will not get updated.

It would be nice to see the Datacard feature to work.

I would love to hear your feedback.

  • We can use Patch command to update the data in SP if it's outside of the gallery or form.

For Example , we can have textbox and use
