How to force a calculated field in dataverse to calculate from canvas PowerApp

As per the subject really. How can we force a calculated field in dataverse to calculate when submitting a form (creating a record) from within a canvas app? Currently it seems the default behaviour is that it will automatically recalculate when saving the record in my model-driven app. I want the calculation to happen when I tell it to from canvas PowerApps. Any ideas?

@Chris66 When you have a calculated field in dataverse, when submitting a form (creating or editing a record), these fields do get calculated automatically. I have done it many times. If you have any issue with that, please share it.
