Multiple list items from one form submission

Hi everyone,

 

I am not sure if this is possible but hoping it is. Anyway I am currently using a power apps form to replace a spreadsheet. When being used it has about 20 fields which need to be filled out each time. However if one user may need to submit 5 of these but only one of the fields (comments) changes each time. Is there a way I can save all other fields except for comments so the user only has to change the comments box field each time? Each of the 5 entries also needs to be a different item on a SharePoint list.

 

hopefully someone knows how to do this or a way to get around it.

thanks!

Hi @Georgia_cutler ,

 

You could try to create variables for each fields except for comments field. So the user will enter data once.

Does this mean the variable will reset for each user, each time it is used? Thanks

Hi @Georgia_cutler ,

 

The value of the variable is reset every time the user opens the app.
