I'm completely new to PowerApps and I got stuck on dropdown issue. The thing is - I have a form that is connected to a Sharepoint list. There are several dropdowns but the first dropdown (System) with choices (OKbase, PowerKey, Money S3) needs to filter choices in another dropdown (Role).
The Role dropdown has following choices by default:
HR + Salaries
What I aim for is to have following Role choices if OKbase is selected in System dropdown:
HR + Salaries
And below Role choices if PowerKey System is selected:
I'd really appreciate any help, thanks!
You will have to define the relationship between those values (which Roles belong to which System). For example, you could have another SharePoint list with a text column and a choice column. An example of entry in that list would be: Text="Power Key", Choices=Line Manager, HR. This tells that the Power Key has 2 values (according to your example).
This way the app will know what choices belong to what value.
After having that table, You could have the "System" ComboBox populated as you already have and then use "Filter" function to populate the "Roles" ComboBox (see this page for more details: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-filter-lookup).
Hope this helps.
Hi there @Shanescows!
Thanks for the video, it helped me get the dropdown choices filtered, however, another problem came up. Here's the thing: I created another Sharepoint list to create the relation between System and Role to be able to filter it out, but now when I try to save and submit the form it does not work (No error whatsoever, it just doesn't do anything other than the floating dots above the form). I assume there might be problem with the Role taking its values from another list, because when I leave the Role out blank it works fine.
Have you got any idea how to fix this?
Thanks in advance!
Saving related fields should be handled automatically, if the relationship is defined between the 2 lists. Please see the following page where the saving is eplained in details: http://powerappspros.com/2017/05/powerapps-pro-tips-patching-sharepoint-lists/
@Anonymous LOL. I should start sharing these videos together. Now you need this video. PowerApps SharePoint LookUp Columns it will take you that final mile. 🙂
Hi for all!
MY SOLUTION USING LISTS:
If(Text(DataCardValue17.Selected.Value) = "USA";["TEXAS";"OREGON"];If(Text(DataCardValue17.Selected.Value) = "Brazil";["AMAZONAS";"BAHIA"]))
Hi @Shanescows I got all the way to time 7:55 in your video and the problem I'm having is, I only have "Result" as an option. I'm missing the "Value" option. Rather than using excel as a data source I'm using one sharepoint list with two columns. Any idea why I don't have the "Value" option?
Sort(Distinct(Filter('Customer Census (View Only)', Active="Yes"), BU), Result)
Second that is broken:
Filter('Customer Census (View Only)', BU=MB.Selected.value)
