Review Form before Submit to Sharepoint

I am creating an app that has a form that the client wants to be filled out, then sent to a different page for review before submitting the form to the Sharepoint List, then have a success page that displays some of the information in the form so the user knows it was submitted. 
Diagram:
Form --> Review --> Success

How do I save the data from the form to be displayed on a preview page before it gets submitted to Sharepoint? 

I considered saving the form to a collection, but it seems a form can only have one data binding?

I also considered changing the "DefaultMode" of the form from "Edit" to "View", but this doesn't save any of the input values to be displayed in "View" mode.

I can provide more info if needed. Sorry, I am very new to PowerApps.

No need to necessarily "Save" anything between anywhere.

 

On another screen (call it ReviewScreen), make another form that is set to DisplayMode.View for the FormMode property.

For the Item property, make it match the same Item as that on your Edit form (YourFormScreen) - using perhaps a variable - for the whole Item not just for individual fields.

 

See if general approach above helps you.

Re: Review Form before Submit to Sharepoint

Hi @tperry ,

Do you want to insert a display screen before you submit?

I've made a similar test for your reference:

1)in edit form screen

insert an edit form and a button

set the edit form's datasource: tablename

set the button's OnSelect:

Navigate(Screen4)

2)in display form

insert a  display form, two buttons

set the display form's data source: tablename  (the same as edit form)

set the display form's Items:   (the edit form's name)

Form3.Updates

 set the back's button's OnSelect:

Navigate(Screen3)

set the submit button's OnSelect:  //submit the edit form

SubmitForm(Form3)

 Then, after you fill in data in edit form, you could click the view button. You could view your data in a display form, if you want to make any change you could click back button to back to the edit form. If you do not want to make any change, you could click the submit button to submit the edit form's data.

 

Please do not change the edit form's mode to view.If the edit form's mode is view,submitform function will not work for the form.

You could view your data in a display form, if you want to make any change you could click back button to back to the edit form. If you do not want to make any change, you could click the submit button to submit the edit form's data.

 

Please do not change the edit form's mode to view.If the edit form's mode is view,submitform function will not work for the form.
