Sharepoint List Form not saving after missing required field

I created a SharePoint list form with power apps, and I changed a few of the fields to "required" in power apps (even though they are not required in SharePoint).  When i fill out the form, if i skip a required field and try to save, the form stops me and provides an error just like i would expect it too.  


BUT, once i populate the required field and press "save", nothing happens.   it wont let me save the form and I have to cancel and start over in order to save. 


has anyone else see this issue?  is there a work around?  maybe for the OnSuccess/OnFailure fields, but this is using the SharePoint integration, so Im not sure how those behave with the SharePoint save button. 


Thanks for the help.

Hi @Dave9 ,

The best way to manage required fields is to do it in Power Apps. Do a check on the isBlank() property on the OnSave before the SubmitForm and do a Notify if the field is required.

  Notify("YourFieldLabelName is compulsory . . .",NotificationType.Error);

Hi @Dave9 ,

Did you get this sorted?

Hey @WarrenBelz ,


Sorry I got distracted with a few other projects.  I worked on this solution today and it does not seem to be working. It seems that the SharePoint integration piece does a lot more prior to the OnSave control.   I added the IF statement like you suggested, but I havent recieved the notification when I press save because the PowerApps or SharePoint required fields checker runs first.  This seems like it may be a bug.  Once I have been notified that I missed a required field, I should be able to correct my mistake and then finish saving.  But pressing the save button again does nothing. 

Thanks @Dave9 ,

One thing I have learnt with SharePoint Integration is that the more you try to customize the in-built function (OnSave in particular), the less predicable the results. The is particularly the case with multiple screens, but I have also seen other examples such as yours may where as you have noted it will not pick up a blank control.

I have a workaround that generally does the job, but users need to be aware of it. I put all controlson the form with "standard" large icons at top right and tell users to use them and all seem to work well. I must admit I have not got a lot of SP forms where I need to do this as I tend to use stand-alone apps for more complex things, however most of my SP apps edit screens are actually copies of these pasted in (it is not difficult and saves a heap of time).
