Power apps Submit Form adding data to hidden fields

I have Power Apps New Request Form and Data verse table. I have to create new request form and store the data into Data verse.

I am using "SubmitForm"  function to store the value. But i have to maintain choice column for capture the status,like Once I select the draft button data needs to stored as "Draft" same way submit button to save as "Submitted".

 

Can anyone help on this?I have used global variable but it is working when the fields are not hidden but I made visible to false and submit is not updating the status.

Hi @gowtham1907 ,

From your description, I know that:

1. You have a form with some fields that need to be populated by users.

2. In your Dataverse, there is also a Choice field(for example, this field called “Status_choice”) and this field does not display in above form.

3. Outside the form, there are two button, one is “Draft” button, the other is “Submitted” button. When click Draft button, you want to create new record with Status_choice =Draft, when click Submitted button, you want to create a new record with Status_choice =Submitted.

 

If my understand is correct, you can try below formula for these two button. 

Before apply below formula, make sure your Choice field has options like below:

For Draft button, set OnSelect property to(There are two fields in my form):

Patch('Expense Nature Categories',Defaults('Expense Nature Categories'),
{'Expense Nature Category (cre5c_name)':DataCardValue13.Text,
'Category  ':DataCardValue16.Text,
Status_choice:Status_choice.Draft})

 

For Submitted button, you can try this formula:

Patch('Expense Nature Categories',Defaults('Expense Nature Categories'),
{'Expense Nature Category (cre5c_name)':DataCardValue13.Text,
'Category  ':DataCardValue16.Text,
Status_choice:Status_choice.Submitted})

 

On your side, you should try formula like this(edit below DataverseName and ColumnName(inside your form) based on your requirement):

Patch(DataverseName,Defaults(DataverseName),{
ColumnAInForm:DataCardValue1.Text,
ColumnBInForm:DataCardValue2.Text,
...
ChoiceColumnName:ChoiceColumnName.Draft
})

Best regards,

Allen
