Need some help on Powerapps with sharepoint list

Hello, i need a little help on powerapps.

 

I need to make an app that is based on some sharepoint list. The app is supposed to get a question, take the specific 4 answer of this question and then store the selected answer in an other sharepoint list.

 

So i got a question sharepoint list,  i have another sharepoint list with 4 answer per question so i got a lookup assigned to the question it refers to. And i need to store only the selected answer by the user in a third sharepoint list.

And i have 2 majors problem i'm a power apps begginner and i don't know how to make the choice between the 4 answer (i can not use the "choice" field of sharepoint) so every answer is an item of a sharepoint list linked to the question by a lookup column.

And secondly i don't know how to store the selected item in another list with powerapps.

If anyone got a solution i'm pretty sure its not that hard but i tried by myself and i failed so if anyone got an idea 🙂

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you mean that :

1) question sharepoint list: one question field (text type)

2)answer list:  four answer field(text type), related question field(lookup field)

choose answer for every question and save the selected item to another list (selected answer list)?

If so, I've made a similar test for your reference:

1)create three lists

question list: question field(text type)

answer list: related question field(lookup field) A1,A2,A3,A4fields(text type)

selectedanswer list: question field(lookup field--to question list), answer field(text type)

2)in powerapps

insert a gallery, set its Items: Answer

insert a label and four check boxes inside the gallery

set the label's Text:

ThisItem.relatedquestion.Value

set checkbox1's Text:

ThisItem.A1

set checkbox1's OnCheck:

Set(var,A1);Reset(Checkbox2);Reset(Checkbox3);Reset(Checkbox4)

set checkbox2's Text:

 

ThisItem.A2

 

set checkbox2's OnCheck:

 

Set(var,A2);Reset(Checkbox1);Reset(Checkbox3);Reset(Checkbox4)

 

set checkbox3's Text:

 

ThisItem.A3

 

set checkbo31's OnCheck:

 

Set(var,A3);Reset(Checkbox1);Reset(Checkbox2);Reset(Checkbox4)

 

set checkbox4's Text:

 

ThisItem.A4

 

set checkbox4's OnCheck:

 

Set(var,A4);Reset(Checkbox1);Reset(Checkbox2);Reset(Checkbox3)

 

set the arrow button's OnSelect:

If(IsEmpty(Filter(selectedanswer,question.Value=ThisItem.relatedquestion.Value)),Patch(selectedanswer,Defaults(selectedanswer),{question:ThisItem.relatedquestion,answer:var}),Patch(selectedanswer,LookUp(selectedanswer,question.Value=ThisItem.relatedquestion.Value),{answer:var}))

Then after you choose answer click the arrow button.If the question has answer already, you will update answer.If the question has no answer, you will create answer.
