SharePoint custom form with PowerApps - Autosave

Hi at all

 

In a SPO list you usually have the possibility to edit a entry and get a autosave for every column.

 

like here:

After editing the form with PowerApps this feature isn't available anymore and I have to take "Edit all" and "Save".
Isn't it possible to keep the autosave-feature, even with PowerApps custom forms?

 

Thanks a lot in advance and all the best

 

Sebastian

Re: SharePoint custom form with PowerApps - Autosave

Hi @steersebastian ,

Do you want to achieve a "Auto-Save" functionality within the custom form app?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps. As an alternative solution, I think the OnChange property of each Text Input box within the data cards in your Edit form could achieve your needs.

 

Please consider set the OnChange property of the Text Input box (or DatePicker control, or ComboBox, ....) within the data cards in your Edit form to following formula:

For Text field data card:

If(
   SharePointForm1.Mode = FormMode.Edit,
   Patch(
         'SP List',
          SharePointIntegration.Selected,
          {
             TextField1: TextInput1.Text
          }
   )
)

For Date type field data card:

If(
   SharePointForm1.Mode = FormMode.Edit,
   Patch(
         'SP List',
          SharePointIntegration.Selected,
          {
             DateTypeField: DatePicker1.SelectedDate
          }
   )
)

For Choice field data card:

If(
   SharePointForm1.Mode = FormMode.Edit,
   Patch(
         'SP List',
          SharePointIntegration.Selected,
          {
             ChoiceField: {
                            Value: ChoiceFieldComboBox.Selected.Value
                          }
          }
   )
)

you need to apply above formula to each data card in your Edit form.

Re: SharePoint custom form with PowerApps - Autosave

Hey @v-xida-msft 

 

Thanks for providing the OnChange code. It works really well!

 

I have a form that has about 90+ fields on it and I have users running into 1 issue. When they click out of the field after editing it, the form jumps all the way to the top and they have to rescroll down to the next field.

 

Do you know why this could be happening? Is there something I need to turn off or change?
