Powerapp does not update sharepoint list after app closing

Hello,

 

I have created an app that have two screens: 

- first that shows picture, name and phone number (using Office365user add-in)

- second with possibility of check in and check out

 

The app is connected to a sharepoint list and everything works correctly if i have the app opened and i click check in, my profile appears on the first screen, if i click check out, my profile dissapear but when I click check in and then close the app and open it again, the check out button does not work and does not update the data, so even though I click it, the data is still visible and sharepoint list does not update.

 

I used the following code in the check out button:

OnSelect: Refresh('Sharepoint List');; If(!IsBlank(CurrentCheckedInRecord); Patch('Sharepoint List';CurrentCheckedInRecord;{CheckOut:Now()}));; Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)

DisplayMode: If(
    !IsBlank(LookUp('Sharepoint List'; StaffEmail=varUserEmail And CheckOut=Blank()));
    DisplayMode.Edit;
    DisplayMode.Disabled)

 

Could you please support why the checkout button does not update my sharepoint list after the app is closed?

 

Many thanks in advance!!

Hi @Bartek1 ,

 

There are some changes, in your display and OnSelect Codes.

 

First of All, what I did I am storing a status in SP List, like if someone checks in, then it will Store "IN"  in the Status Column, and when the user checks out it will patch the column with Out, which means the user checked out that day.

This will help you to configure your display code and OnSelect code according to that.

So,
Steps:

1)  Create a column in your SP List, Status and set the column as Single Line Text.
2) you have to update your Check in Code, Like this

Check IN > OnSelect

 

Patch('Sharepoint List'; Defaults('Sharepoint List');{
Title:"Employee",
StaffFullName:User().FullName,
StaffEmail:User().Email,
Check_x0020_In:Now(),
Status: "IN"
}
);
 Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)

 

Check IN > Display Mode:

 

If(!IsBlank(LookUp(Sharepoint List,Email Column Name =varUserEmail And Status="IN" )),DisplayMode.Disabled,DisplayMode.Edit)

 


CheckOUT > OnSelect

 

Refresh('Sharepoint List');

If(
 CountRows(Filter( Sharepoint List,Email Column = varUserEmail,Status="IN" )) > 0, 
 Patch(
      Sharepoint List,
       First( Filter(Sharepoint List, Email Column Name = varUserEmail , Status="IN")),
       {
         Check_x0020_Out: Now(),
         Status: "OUT"
       }
     )
   
  
);

Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)

 


Check Out > Display Code

 

If(!IsBlank(LookUp(SharePoint List, Email Column Name =varUserEmail And Status="IN" )),DisplayMode.Edit,DisplayMode.Disabled)

 

 

Note: Change the SP List name to your list name, Change The Email Column Name to Your Email Column Name and I use ( ; ) for Code end and Single ( , ) for next column to patch. 
Edit the Code accordingly.

Hi, 

 

Use below one as you have used the (;) instead of (,) in function. 

 

OnSelect: Refresh('Sharepoint List'); If(!IsBlank(CurrentCheckedInRecord),Patch('Sharepoint List',CurrentCheckedInRecord,{CheckOut:Now()})), Navigate(MainScreen,ScreenTransition.Fade)

 

DisplayMode: If(
    !IsBlank(LookUp('Sharepoint List', StaffEmail=varUserEmail And CheckOut=Blank())),
    DisplayMode.Edit,
    DisplayMode.Disabled)

 

I hope it will work. 

 

 

@VDS_Mantrait didnt work, i need to use (;) as i use powerapp in other language than English. There is no error in the app and the checkout button works but only when it is clicked during the same period the checkin button was clicked. If i click checkin button and then close the app, when I open the app again, i can click checkout button but it does not upload my data on sharepoint. 

 

I do not understand why it works directly after using checkin button but do not work after the up is reopen.

@MH3here is the issue:

Basically I have the app that has the check in and check out function and additional screen that display the gallery of the records.

The check in and check out button works but after I close the app and open again, check out button does not work and do not update the data on my sharepoint.

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hi @Bartek1 ,

 

are you saving User Email? in your SP list?

and can I see your Check In and Check Out Button OnSelect and Display Mode Codes? 

@MH3 

Check in button:

On Select: Set(CurrentCheckedInRecord; Patch('Sharepoint List'; Defaults('Sharepoint List');{Title:"Employee";StaffFullName:User().FullName;StaffEmail:User().Email;CheckIn:Now()}));; Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)

Display Mode: If(IsBlank(LookUp('Sharepoin List'; StaffEmail=varUserEmail And CheckOut=Blank()));
    DisplayMode.Edit;
    DisplayMode.Disabled)
 

 

CheckOut:

OnSelect: Refresh('Sharepoint List');; If(!IsBlank(CurrentCheckedInRecord); Patch('Sharepoint List';CurrentCheckedInRecord;{CheckOut:Now()}));; Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)

DisplayMode: If(
    !IsBlank(LookUp('Sharepoint List'; StaffEmail=varUserEmail And CheckOut=Blank()));
    DisplayMode.Edit;
    DisplayMode.Disabled)

 

I also have in this screen onVisible: Set(varUserEmail;User().Email)

 

 

Hi, 

 

It doesn't update because after closing the app, it didn't found any reference ID for updating the Checkout data. You need to set a UID/Ticket ID for each record and whenever user open the app again then he need to select the Ticket ID/UID from list and basis on that ID lookup you need to pass the ID reference in Power Flow to get updated the same record. 

 

Hope you understand what i am trying to explain. 

@VDS_Mantra  the user is recognized by the email address. Isn't it the problem with the Set function? Maybe it should be something else?

Hi, 

 

As you use the below function on Check out button, so after closing the app set variable value of "CurrentCheckedInRecord" will be null, so this is the reason it works properly when you do both activity during open the app, however as you close the app this variable value will be null and checkout button patch did not found any reference for updating the record of same user. 

 

Here, you need to set some UID/Ticket No. to resolve this problem. 

 

Hope you got my point. 

 

CheckOut:

OnSelect: Refresh('Sharepoint List');; If(!IsBlank(CurrentCheckedInRecord); Patch('Sharepoint List';CurrentCheckedInRecord;{CheckOut:Now()}));; Navigate(MainScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade)
