Leave SharePoint Online form open in edit mode after save/submit

Hi, when creating a Power Apps form from the SharePoint dialog I'd like users to be able to save the form periodically without the form closing after they save which is the default behavior.  By using SubmitForm(SharePointForm1) the form closes as does when I select "submit" in the SharePoint dialog.  Is is possible to simply save the record and leave the form open in edit mode?  If so how would I accomplish this?

Hi @cbernier35 ,

Have a look at the OnSave setting in the SharePointIntegration. It probably has a RequestHide() at the end, which would close the form. You should just be able to leave it at SubmitForm(SharePointForm1)

Thanks I literally found it after I submitted this and said what's this? So I deleted it.  Thanks for the pointer though.


Thanks @cbernier35 ,

If my post was correct, please mark as solution so other people with the same question can find it.


I tired earlier and it kept erroring out. I’ll try again later.

This is what I get, Ive tried multiple browsers too.

Authentication failed for the action you are trying to do. This failure could be due to your browser not supporting JavaScript, JavaScript not being enabled, or trying to use the action URL directly in the browser address bar instead of clicking the link on the page.

If you can do it later, fine. Not a big deal it is just good practice to close the item and index it properly.
