Keeping drop down list selections selected after closing app


I'm building my first app and had a question on building a drop down list and a toggle. I have both used in the app I'm developing just unsure on how to make it so that when the app, specifically the drop down list and toggle, are altered that this is not reset when the app is closed. Trying to get the app to perform so that several users can alter the drop down list and when one of the others open it is still set at the last changes made by the previous user. Any help would be much appreciated.


Have a good day,

Hi @gabehill All selections made in the App are transient, meaning the changes will go away once the App is closed. If you want them to be persistent, you will have to store it somewhere. Probably in an Excel sheet, SharePoint List or Dataverse table. It depends on what you are trying to do and what resources you have at your disposal.

Hope this helps!
