Powerapps on mobile devices clearing data when entered

Hi ive helped develop a powerapps system that uses SharePoint as the database. Initially our apps where working fine however of late we have come across a few issues. When we load the apps on PC the data entered goes into the system fine. However when using the powerapps app in andriod or ios the information is entered but then the chosen fields choice or txt info disappears, we have several columns in this app that take a few mins to fill out correctly and we would like our users to have to only change a choice column or two and then keep entering the data however it continually clears half the time and then works fine the other half?

Any help would be appreciated

Re: Powerapps on mobile devices clearing data when entered

Would you please explain a bit for the following part:

" to have to only change a choice column or two and then keep entering the data however it continually clears half the time and then works fine the other half?"

 

By the way, which control or function that you used to enter data into the Data Source?

 

If here you are using EditForm control, then please make sure the value input process is not interrupted.

Besides, make sure the changing of the column will not call the ReSetForm() function.

 

For Patch() scenario, it should have no influence.

 

It is more helpful if you could share more details about your scenario, better with a screenshot.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: Powerapps on mobile devices clearing data when entered

Hi, 

 

The users would like to press the plus button (selected in the screenshot) as they dont need to change the information many times a shift i.e the "to" column may go from go-line to wastedump or rom pad etc.

Its a patch function. (and the tic is a submit data function)

 

Patch('Haulage Operators Log', Defaults('Haulage Operators Log'),{Title:dcvtitle.Text, starthours:dcvstarthours.Text,finishhours:dcvfinish.Text, Comments:dcvcomments.Text, delayduratiion:dcvdelayduration.Text, Activity:{Value:dcvactivity.Selected.Value,'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference"}, Assetid:{Value:dcvassetid.Selected.Value,'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",Id:dcvassetid.Selected.Id},Pit:{Value:dcvpit.Selected.Value, '@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference"},to:{Value:dcvloadto.Selected.Value, '@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference"},From:{Value:dcvloadfrom.Selected.Value,'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference"}, delaytype:{Value:dcvdelaytype.Selected.Value,'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference"}})
