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,

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

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

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

Hi @BryanHuang11 ,

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!.
