Insert Gallery with Different Data Source into Form



This is complex to explain, but i'll give it a go:



  • PowerApp created from Sharepoint Custom List
  • Want to insert a Gallery w/Checkboxes into the Form then Patch the Checked values into some of the Sharepoint List Columns
  • Gallery requires data from a SECOND Sharepoint Custom List



  • The only way i've found to insert a Gallery into a Form is to adjust the height of a Form Data Card and paste in a Gallery
  • Unfortunately, once the Gallery is inserted into the Data Card, the text in the Gallery disappears
  • I can manage to feed ONE column of the Second Sharepoint Custom List to the Gallery by:
    • Clicking View/Data Source/on the Gallery. This shows the Gallery is pointed to the Data Source of the FORM
    • Clicking a Text Box INSIDE the Gallery allows me to change the Data Source to the Second Sharepoint List via
      • Text property: ThisItem.<second_sharepoint_list_column_name>
    • HOWEVER, if I insert another Text Box into the Gallery, there is no option to choose other columns of this second Sharepoint list. Its one column or nothing. 


  • Does anyone have some pointers on how to insert a Gallery with Different Data Sources into a Form?


Thank you
