PowerApps multiple checkbox items to Sharepoint choice column Checkboxes(allow multiple selection)

Hi All, 

 

I have a SharePoint list with a Choice Column RequestType, which consist of different request type based on the user selection. I have created checkbox controls for each type of request on the PowerApp custom form and I like to push the selected checkbox values from the PowerApp form to the RequestType column in the SharePoint list.

 

I'm getting an error message: Expected text value. Not sure what went wrong

 

Thank you for the support,

 

SharePoint List

Hi Phoebe, 

 

Thank you for getting back to me. 

 

Yes i want to use check boxes to update my multiple choice column in Sharepoint list.

 

I have double check my require column in sharepoint and Powerapps, they are all update. 

 

It is working fine if creating PowerApps from Sharepoint site. I want to build a Powerapps from scratch which can be used on Desktop application. 

 

I applied the same formula on PowerApps custom blank form.  Not sure where i get it wrong 

 

Error message: Expected text value

Hi @Anonymous ,

Do you want to use check boxes to update your multiple choice column?

I've tried your formula, but not found anything wrong. I updated successfully.

Could you tell me where did your error message appear?

I need to kown whcih property has problem.

Here's my test:

my choice is : test1,test2,test3,test4,test5,test6,test7

I firstly unlock the requesttype datacard, then delete the combo box.

Insert 7 check boxs.

Set all check boxes' Default like this:

If(Checkbox1.Text in First(fruit1234).RequestType.Value,true,false)
If(Checkbox2.Text in First(fruit1234).RequestType.Value,true,false)
.....

Set the datacard's Update:

ForAll(Split(Concatenate(If(Checkbox1.Value,Checkbox1.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox2.Value,Checkbox2.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox3.Value,Checkbox3.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox4.Value,Checkbox4.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox5.Value,Checkbox5.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox6.Value,Checkbox6.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox1.Value,Checkbox7.Text,"")),","),{Value:Result})

This works good for me.

Please check whether you have required column, do not forget to update it!.

Hi @v-yutliu-msft ,

 

I have just used code that found it very helpful. Can you please explain {Value:Result} and how to use this variable in a patch command.

 

Thanks

 

 

ForAll(Split(Concatenate(If(Checkbox1.Value,Checkbox1.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox2.Value,Checkbox2.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox3.Value,Checkbox3.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox4.Value,Checkbox4.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox5.Value,Checkbox5.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox6.Value,Checkbox6.Text&",",""),If(Checkbox1.Value,Checkbox7.Text,"")),","),{Value:Result})

 

Hi Pheobe,

 

Facing a similar issue, along with multi selection I also wish to give user the liberty to add another checkbox if the option they wish to select is not there. Also that checkbox should stay there once the user has added.

 

Regards.
