Loading data from repeating sections prior to submit

Hi,

 

I will be working on a powerapp which has one master list form with few fields and then about 6-7 repeating sections so going to leverage collection concept for the same. For each repeating section, I have a child list created in sharepoint

 

I have been able to save respective repeating section info to SharePoint lists but I have a requirement now such that users should be able to come back tomorrow and submit the remaining portion of the app, so ideally they would prefer to submit some information today and then when they go to work tomorrow, would enter remaining and then submit finally, I also have to account for offline mode into this app.

 

Would it be possible to load the previous session data when user comes back in to show the uncompleted form submission keeping in mind that I would have to load data from 6-7 different repeating sections from previous session, can someone shed some light please if this is possible to implement.

Hi @dmistry ,

Do you want to load data that you last run the app?

If so, I think you could refer how to build offline app.

The theory is the same.

When you log out, the data will be saved in local by using the SaveData collection.

When you log in, the data that you saved in local will be loaded by using LoadData collection.

Here's a doc about this in details for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/offline-apps

What's more, if you want to save and load  6-7 parts, you could save it to 6-7 places, then load it in 6-7 collections. Just need to collect them together after you've load them.
