Method to clear field

We created a form to submit nominations which will get saved as list in Sharepoint. We have a field called "Need More Info" which is a text box with multiple lines. If the nominator provides more information as requested, there should be a method to clear what's in the "Needs More Info" Field. Created a button called "Clear" next to it hoping that when clicked it should clear the text in the "Needs More Info" Field with Reset() command. But it expects the default value of "Needs More Info" Field to be blank or "". Currently is it Parent.Default. When I make it " " , it is not displaying the data in the field at all. Any help would be appreciated. New to powerapps.

@A_San ,

The Update of the card should be

'Information NeededDataCard2'.Text

@A_San ,

Sorry - that is actually the card not the control - it is a bit difficult deciphering pictures.

I go back again to my previous post - is your TextBox named InformationNeeded (the same as the field). If so, change it now to something else (as an example InfoNeeded) - then your Update will be InfoNeeded.Text.

This is not difficult issue - your card Update simply needs to be the output of the control and you should not name this the same as the field as this leads to Ambiguity.
