Sharepoint/PowerApps: Using multiple submitforms() to sharepoint lists fails randomly

Hi,

 

I think we've encountered a strange bug since the update of the newest Sharepoint Version (the one with the left icon bar):

We had a PowerApp that submitted data to multiple sharepoint lists via

 

 

Concurrent(
SubmitForm('Form1'),
SubmitForm('Form2'), 
SubmitForm('Form3'),
...
);

 

 

This worked like a charm until somewhat mid-last week (1st week of May).

Now, it randomly submits all forms or only the very first. I create a new entry via Sharepoint - all lists are populated. I do so again, only the very first is populated. I try again, all are populated. There is no pattern, and as far as I can see, it doesn't matter what browser or switches I pull on the frontend.

 

Did somebody notice something similar?

 

Thanks!

@Ch483 

Try troubleshooting with 

SubmitForm('Form1');
SubmitForm('Form2');
SubmitForm('Form3');
...

and see if that works.

Thank you very much for your input - appreciate your help very much.

 

We tried it already with and without Concurrent() - but alas nothing changes. We have 10 PowerApps on this Sharepoint and all demonstrated the same behaviour from one day to the next.

Do you have any error checking in place?  Your forms all have an OnFailure and an OnSuccess action.

I would attempt to at least put Notify functions in each one of those actions in all the forms and see which one is not submitting properly.

Hi RandyHayes,

 

thanks for your input. I added Notifies to OnFailue in all forms but they don't fire.

The form, that comes first in the SubmitForms() lineup is ok, the rest is missing.

 

The funny thing is that it worked fine until some days ago and since (apparanetly?) the sharepoint version changed, it doesn't work anymore. Looked through all KBs, but didn't find anything that could point into that direction.

Just as a thought: The apps (i.e. customized sharepoint input forms) contain multiple forms that get submitted to distinct lists in Sharepoint. These forms are shown one by one (triggering via buttons that switch visibilities) - could it be something with that? When saving, I tried to switch each form visible, then submit it, then go to the next - but alas, nothing changed.

 

Any thoughts?

Your help is much appreciated!
