LoadData for Forms



I'd like to use SaveData and LoadData to save progress if interrupted while filling out a form. How do I get the saved data loaded into the form?



  • OnSelect property of Save Button:
    • ClearCollect(entireForm, {every_field_in_form : every_field_in_form});
    • SaveData(entireForm, "savedForm");
    • Set(fileWasSaved, true)
  • OnVisible property of Edit Screen: 
    • If(fileWasSaved = true, LoadData(entireForm, "savedForm", true), NewForm(<form_name>))

I think this will load the "entireForm" collection with the data saved, but since the form has a different data source... i'm stuck. 


Thank you very much

Hi @ericonline,


One Form could only have one data source binded, so I think this cannot be achieved so far. 

You could post this idea in the PowerApps Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.

Thank you for the reply. If the form did only have one data source, how do I LoadData from a SavedData collection into the form? When I execute LoadData, it doesn't populate the form fields.
