Performing a save and also update a field value



I am trying to incorporate a "Save & Submit" button. When this button is clicked, I would like to update a text field to "Yes" and also save the rest of the data on the form.


I currently have this


Patch('MyRequests', {ID: Value(ID_DataCard1.Default)},{'Start WF?':"Yes"}); SubmitForm(SharePointForm1);


However, this only saves the record without setting the value of the text field to Yes. I had to press the button again to update the text field.


Can this be achieved using Power Apps?  Please help

Hi @cooltechie 


Let it only submit form 


then on the OnSuccess property of the form



Patch('MyRequests', formname.LastSubmit, {'Start WF?':"Yes"});

Hi Reza,


Thank you for your response. Currently the On Success form event has


ResetForm(SharePointForm1); RequestHide()


Should I keep this or remove?

Tried and unfortunately it didn't work. It submits the form but doesn't update the field,

I take that back. I cleared cache and it seems to be working. Thank you.  Now how do I  make the button disabled after I submit?

Hi @cooltechie 


after your submit

the onscuccess property will patch then reset form and then request hide (which should close the form window)

so not sure why you need to disable the button

That is a requirement. The reason is that if the user views the form the disabled button will tell him that it was submitted,

Hi @cooltechie 


Is this a submit button that you created or is the the default submit button that shows up on the form screen menu?


I need to understand the scenario when you want to disable

A screenshot would help
