Facing issue in edit option of survey app

Hi Team,

I have created a survey app which is spanned across multiple pages around 10 pages with lot's of page items on each page.


I am able to fill the survey and I am able to save the data on sharepoint list ,using the collection funtion for saving the data to sharepoint.

The problem is if someone wants to edit the filled survey I want to use the existing page items ( spanned across multiple pages ) for loading the current data filled by user from the sharepoint list and update the same record. 

Could you please suggest some solution.

Hello @Rajendra

I also did same kind of POC.

In my app, i was storing all my data in SP list and was displaying that list on a screen in Gallery control.

And there i gave a button Edit .

OnSelect of this button i was navigating to the first screen of my app to populate the controls on that page.

So basically if you are using a gallery control then u can use "Gallery.selected.ColumnName" on Default property of your controls.

But i think u r not using gallery so what u can do is make another column in ur SP List for user info and store the User Dsiplay  name or User Email there.

Then onselect of Edit, compare the data from SP list to the Logged in Users Email or Display Name. And then use that info to populate ur controls.

Hi @Rajendra,


Here is my understanding about your issue:

You have too many columns for one item in SharePoint list that you want to seperate them to multiple screens in SharePoint. You have managed this to work when adding a new item, but do not know how to edit an exsiting item in multiple screens with multiple edit forms and submit them with one click. If there is any misunderstanding, pleas feel free to tell.


If this is the situation, then I'm afaid that this cannot be achieved so far. Please consider to include all the columns in one edit form. You can include as many as you need as a scrolling bar would be added automantically once there are too many of them.

Re: Facing issue in edit option of survey app

Hi Mona,


You understanding is absolutely correct.

But I can't combine these multiple forms in one single page as our app is a Survey app and each page is representing a question title which is having multiple questions.


Can you please suggest me any other way for achieving the desired result.
