How to save rows of a gallery to a backend

Hi there,

 

Does anyone know how I would go about saving the rows in this horizontal gallery to a backend data source?

 

I've thought about using Dataverse or maybe setting this table to a variable but I'm not sure how to approach it.

 

My aim is to move the temporary table that is stored in the Clearcollect to somewhere permanent where I can update and edit it.

Many thanks,

Conor

Your data is in your Gallery...you can just write it to your datasource.

Example formula:

Patch(yourDataSource,
    ForAll(yourGallery.AllItems,
        {ID: ID,  //or other primary key if not SharePoint
         <columnNames and values>
        }
    )
)

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hi @RandyHayes,

 

Thanks for the input on this! I've taken what you said above and tried applying it below but I keep getting an unknown error. I'm trying to save the gallery to an empty table I've setup on Dataverse by using the Patch function. Is there something obvious here that I'm missing?

 

Many thanks,

Conor
