Listing Appended Changes from Sharepoint List on PowerApps

I've created a PowerApp that show information from a Sharepoint list.  One of the columns in my list has "append changes" active which means we can basically track changes each time this field is edited.  This is helpful because we use it as a comment sections for the item that a user can read the changes as if they were comments.

 

However, in PowerApps on an item detail screen it only lists the most recent entry (from a PowerApps template) and doesn't append the changes.  Is there any way to do this where it shows all the changes (just as plan text) that user can scroll through?

 

Thanks,

Hi, I went for the elegant solution mentioned in the previous comment.

 

But first, I had to convert my pre-existing fields with versioning enabled.

Then deleted the old fields and finally disabled versioning entirely.

 

To migrate the data, I developed this flow. My interface is in italian and I'm using a mix of italian and english words. Sorry about that, but I think you can get the gist of it.

Hi @martinav, hope all is well! Would like to know how may I apply this to powerapps? I'm a beginner here so apologies for the inconvenience... Thank you!

I just had to do the same for notes.

 

To avoid using a PowerAutomate flow, I prefered to make a multiline field and added a textbox to the datacard.

 

On the "update" properties of the DataCard I just add the value of the textbox manualy and make the multiline read only.

NotesAdd_Value is the textbox added in the datacard

Notes_Value is the multiline textbox linked with the "Notes" field

Notes is the column name (field)

* the last quote is not aligned on pupose to not leave space after carriage return

 

I find it easier and more simple

If(!IsBlank(NotesAdd_Value.Text),
   Concatenate(Now()," - ",
   User().FullName," - ",
   NotesAdd_Value.Text,"
",
   ThisItem.Notes)
  ,ThisItem.Notes
)
