Hi @shaneOZ 

 

Could you share more details with your Apps?

What are the Items property of DropDown and the Default property of Checkbox ? How do you get the previous selected items?

 

If you want to change the Value of dropdown and check box, you have to set the Default property of them.

Take for example:

If there is a variable to store the previous selected items, when the variable exists, the default dropdown value will be changed.

Set the default property of dropdown: If(!IsBlank(Var), Var.'ColumnName', ...)

If this is not very clear, please post back more details, I will try my best to help you.

Best regards,

Sik
