SP Online List: Title field required iOS bug ?!

Little bit of background:

I created a pretty large SP Online list with several columns of different data types. Some need to contain required information, some not.

  • Created a canvas app from that list
  • Modified the editform to make all fields from the list available

(Was working fine on PC and iOS)

  • As the list was too long I splitted the fields on multiple screens
  • Added additional data validation on DisplayMode for the next screen buttons and used the following onSelect function on each:

NewForm(EditForm1_1); Navigate(EditScreen_reporter, ScreenTransition.Fade)

NewForm(EditForm1_2); Navigate(EditScreen_account, ScreenTransition.Fade)

  • At the last screen added the submit button with Patch function to the SP Online list with each EditForm.Updates
  • This solution does work fine now on the PC but doesn’t anymore on iOS. I always get an error after submitting that title field is required but missing.
    1. DataValidation wouldn’t let me go to the next screen of title field would be empty which isn’t the case


I hope the scenario is clear enough to find a solution for this behavior only on my mobile device.


Thank you all


no idea why I followed the approach to use "Patch"... stupid me.


Used "Collect" now as I only need new records and working fine.


Srsly last issue I'm facing now is the attachment field 🙂




returns wrong type as "table" is expected. any advice as I do not find any other related type.

setting max available attachments to only 1 items doesnt change anything.


thank you all already for your help!

I found other comments in this community that collecting single attachment column to a SP list is just not possible. So I rerolled and followed again my first approach from:


this time the application is working but there is one limitaion: I can only choose an attachment from my mobile phone picture library. if i choose "take a picture" and select "use this picture" the app resets completly and the first screen appears again.


Yes...I have not found any way to make it work outside a form. I use the Attachments a lot. I do have a few that puts it somewhere else and then a flow puts it as the attachment on that item but in Powerapps itself it has to be in a Form. 


I do however find stuff all the time that people say are not possible that really is so don't always believe those...just might be
