SharePoint List with Repeating Section and with Approval Process

I am new to Power Apps, I've been using Nintex On-Premise prior to migrating to O365 (I realize this is the PowerApps Community and I would probably use a Flow Automation with my PowerApp), but the main question is setting up my Power App with a Repeating Section.  So trying to figure out the best way to:

 

Run an Approval Power Automate for multiple Approvers and those approvers Edit the SharePoint List with a PowerApp that has a repeating section to be able to add a multiple product descriptions and product amounts.  The other fields they would need to update are either checkboxes or dropdown selections.

@kmw1130 

 

A repeating table in PowerApps, a "sub-table" is usually abstracted into two Galleries. The first gallery is your main Gallery where Items refers to your main table. The second Gallery's Items usually is a Filter on the selected item from the first table, this becomes your "sub-table". 

 

Each example would be a little different, but the above is a high level overview of one way you could approach it.

Re: SharePoint List with Repeating Section and with Approval Process

Hi @kmw1130 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to create a repeating section in your app to enter multiple product descriptions and product amounts?

Do you want to save the multiple product descriptions and product amounts as separated rows in your SP List?

 

If you want to create a repeating section in your app to enter multiple product descriptions and product amounts, please check and see if the following video would help in your scenario:

Re: SharePoint List with Repeating Section and with Approval Process

@v-xida-msft I want to be able to save the repeating section in a list item, not separate rows.  Could it be saved in a Multiple line Text field?  It could also be saved in a separate list.

Re: SharePoint List with Repeating Section and with Approval Process

Hi @kmw1130 ,

Do you want to save the multiple product descriptions and product amounts into a Multiple text type column of a SP List Item rather than as separated rows?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Concat function could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side, please consider take a try with the following formula:

Patch(
     'Your SP List',
      SharePointIntegration.Selected,   // Find the specific SP List record you want to update
      SharePointForm1.Updates,   // SharePointForm1 represents the Edit form
      {
        MultipleTextField: Concat(  // Concatnate all Description and Amount value within your Gallery into a single one string
                                   RepaetingTableGallery.AllItems,
                                   DescriptionTextBox.Text & " " & AmountTextBox.Text & "<br>" 
                                 )
      }
)

Note: I assume that you customize a form in your SP List using PowerApps, and the approvers use the custom form app to edit your SP List Item.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.
