Can you please clarify two things for me?

1. What is meant by “Custom User”

2. How would the form look/behave differently from how it is now. Screenshots would be helpful.

Lets consider  this ,

 

An empty form with following fields

 

Name,JoiningDate ,manager

 

When i enter the above  details from a form it should save to Database when i click on a button.

Are you just looking for the code to submit the form? If those controls are in and Edit Form You can use this code in the OnSelect property of your button.

SubmitForm(your_form_name);

If they are not in a form put this code in the OnSelect property. Change the fieldnames to match your datasource and the control names to match your controls.

Patch(
your_datasource_name,
Defaults(your_datasource_name),
{
fieldname1: TextInput_Employee.Text,
fieldname2: TextInput_Manager.Text,
fieldname3: TextInput_Department.Text,
fieldname4: DatePicker_Date.SelectedDate
}
)

You refer to "the database" and "submit against database".

 

What is this "database" to which you are referring exactly?

Also, if the database is Common Data Service, what is the Entity you are trying to "submit against"?

If the data source is something else, please provide the relevant details.  

 

We would suggest you post more detail regarding what is your current data source on the PowerApp.

 

If you do not currently have a data source, that is part of your problem.

Without a data source, you would have nothing to submit against.

 

You would go to "Data Sources" (use database looking icon on left) and add a data source.

Then go to select the form and under "Data source", choose the data source you just added under "In your app".

We recommend Common Data Service as the data source.

 

Also, you can do this another way:  go to select the form directly from your screen where the form is, and under "Data source" you can choose the data source from there to add under "Entities" or "Connectors".
