Need a simple step by step guide for a dummie like me.
I have set up/added a column called GeoLocation to my SharePoint list (that part worked). The column shows up in the Fields in the PowerApp.
I would like to use the GPS of the phone and save the location it gives.
How do I go about doing that from here...?
Can I show a map also or do I really need to?
Solved! Go to Solution.
My first stumbling block was using a reserved name for a column - used Location - changed it to Site_Location
Arrrrrrrrrrrrr the beauty of reserved syntac for a start - lesson somewhere to be learnt.
Inserted a text field (Label) and just used the syntax "Location" - the app accepted it as a valid term.
Return the latitude and longitude of the curent location, as a record.
However nothing happened - no values show.
Per attached screen shot.
As a test I put "Connection.Connected" as the text for Label_Location_Cordinates and it returned true.
"Location" is recognised, however Location.Latitude" is not.
The two App Checker are from the GeoLocation per second screen shot.
Is a data connection required for use of the GPS in the phone?
And the problem is with the use of the reserved name - "Location"
Yup - once the column is deleted all works well. (I can reinstate a column to capture what is required under a different name - Site_Location - a text entry descriptive feild.
Note to self: Find out the list of all Reserved Names!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
