Possible Bug - PowerApp not updating fields

I have created a customised form from a Sharepoint list using PowerApps. The form has a variety of different fields which when populated save to the Sharepoint list.


However, I have noticed that some fields when updated revert back to the value they were before. For example I have the following fields:

  • "collection date" - DATE,
  • "Technician" field - PERSON PICKER
  • "Date of Invoice" - DATE

If I go into the form and change the values for each of these fields then the changes save fine. However, If I go into the form and remove the values from these fields and click save then the values reappear. Non of these fields are mandatory so can be blank but I cannot make these empty again once a value has been entered for some reason.


Has anyone come across this before?

Re: Possible Bug - PowerApp not updating fields

Just tried replicating this with a brand new list in Sharepoint with Date, Text, and Number fields. Before I customised this form in PowerApps I could add, remove, change each of the fields with no problem using the default Sharepoint form.


However, once I customised the form in PowerApps, I could no longer remove the data from Date and Number fields without it being added back in when the form was saved. The Text field was not affected by this issue.
