Patch and unpatch checkbox

I want to patch and unpatch checkbox selections directly to my datasource. The problem is with my uncheck, it will only uncheck the first thing. How can I fix the uncheck so this will work?

Default - LookUp(TestResponses, Title=vUserMail && ListID = Text(ThisItem.C1)).CheckValue


OnCheck - Patch(TestResponses,
Coalesce(LookUp(TestResponses, Title=vUserMail && ListID=Text(ThisItem.C1)),
{Title: vUserMail, ListID: ThisItem.C1, CheckValue: Checkbox3.Value}
); UpdateIf(collTestMasterData, C1=ThisItem.C1, {C3:Self.Value})


On UnCheck - Remove(collTestMasterData, BrowseGallery1.Selected); Remove(TestResponses, LookUp(TestResponses, ID = BrowseGallery1.Selected.C1)); ClearCollect(collTestResponses, TestResponses);

Hi @powerapps890 ,

as i read your post , my suggestion and approach is below.

1. Approach - of you want to simply remove the Record from the Souce on Uncheck then use code like below -


2. Approach -

if you want to Update the Uncheck status at source then you can use the Code like below - 


Hope this will help you to resolve your issue.

I am confused what should mine look like? I tried to modify both formulas. Both formulas said they had invalid arguments. Also, wouldn't I need to use a lookup or remove based on the persons email? Many people will be using the app so it needs to be removed just for that person. @VijayTailor 

I don't know the difference. I just need it to be removed from the datasource and the collection. @VijayTailor 

Hi @powerapps890 ,

Then use like below.
For remove from the Source List




 For Removing from the collection.






It says that the type is incompatible and the function remove has invalid arguments. The item removed needs to be based on that persons email C1 also gets the ID number of that item @VijayTailor 

In this requirement , Wrap the Remove function with if condition with the user and other validation true then only you can remove.

For Error Part can you please mention here which place and for which source you getting error?
