Shipping Contents Collection Won't Write to SharePoint

@RandyHayes 

 

Hello Randy,

 

Me again! I'm trying to follow what you taught me in the Budget app I was working on as I have a similar use case with the Shipping App in the sense that I want to write the contents people wish to ship to a separate SharePoint list. I'm able to gather all of entries into the gallery as seen below, but I get errors when I try to write the Collection back to SharePoint via the Submit Form button. I've attached my screenshots and formulas in the Word doc (3 pgs). Would you mind taking a look and seeing if you can spot what I'm doing wrong? Thanks a mil, Teresa

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by #2.  You can most certainly use the < and > on dates.

As for #3, if you've not used the monitor tool to diagnose issues with submitting to your datasource, I would suggest it highly as it will always tell you exactly what the issue is and you can correct from there.  So, 5 or 50 doesn't make a difference as you'll be able to quickly see the problem in the monitor tool.

However, in relation to misplaced letters/misspelling, in general, you should not be using column names unless they are directly coming from the datasource in the record schema.  The more you alter, the harder it is to design your app and the more problems you will have to troubleshoot.

 

Thanks for chiming in though...sometimes the more input the better!

#2 - Ignore me!  I was relying on old information.  I was making the same point you did here.  However, it looks like Microsoft has made dates a delegable function since.

Solved: Problems with delegation when filtering by date - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

Yes...it's an ever changing landscape!!  They became delegable within the past year. 

Other changes of interest:

    - Yes/No columns appear to now be delegable - with correct results.

    - Records in a datasource will refresh themselves now without issuing a refresh (some restrictions apply). Note, this has nothing to do with the fact that you could always patch/update records in your datasource and have changes immediately reflect without a refresh.  This has to do with records will update in your app when external (other app users or means) changes are made.

It's hard to keep track of them all and we all get stuck in the workarounds for when things didn't do that.

Thank you Randy! The formulas you provided recorded the Month, Quarter and Year as seen below.

Here is the latest version of my formula. I realized I am missing a tie in with the Master List which is called 'Domestic Shipping Requests'. I have 3 ID columns in the Domestic list based on the recent help you offered in the forums. One is of course the internal SharePoint ID, The other is ReqNumber which is the 5-digit string (e.g. 10005) and the last is AltReqNumber which is the date-based one. I'm using ReqNumber for the home screen gallery since I am short on space due to the number of columns. I was planning to use AltReqNumber for a Reporting Screen. Does it matter which of the 3 I use? Assuming I have the identical column names in my 'Shipping Request Contents' SharePoint list, how would I add it to the formula below to create the tie in? Thanks in advance for your help. Teresa

Collect(colContents,
{Title: tiItemDescription.Text,
Value:Value(tiValue.Text),
Quantity: Value(tiQty.Text),
TotalValue: Value(lblSubTotal.Text),
Handling:ddHandling.Selected,
UOM:tiUOM.Text,
Year: Year(Now()),
Quarter: RoundUp(Month(Now())/3, 0),
Month: Month(Now()),
       Requestor:
          {
             Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(varUser.Email),
             DisplayName: varUser.FullName,
             Department: "", 
             Email: varUser.Email, 
             JobTitle: ".", 
             Picture: "."
          },
       RequestorEmail: Lower(varUser.Email)
    });
Reset(tiItemDescription);
Reset(tiValue);
Reset(tiQty);
Reset(ddHandling);
Reset(tiUOM)

This is the information you will be getting in your OnSuccess action.

So you're saying that you need to add those to your 'Shipping Request Contents' (SRC) records!?

 

What are those columns in your SRC record schema?  You just need to patch those in on the Collect in the OnSuccess action.

Hi Randy,

 

I'm just trying to ensure that when the user clicks on a shipping request in the home screen that they will see the contents associated with that record. I have a column called ReqNumber in both the 'Domestic Shipping Requests' SharePoint list and the 'Shipping Request Contents' list. The ReqNumber for the 'Domestic Shipping Requests' data source is set in the OnSuccess of the frmMaster. I'm not sure how to get whatever number is generated into the 'Shipping Request Contents' list as well.

 

To recap...

 

The 5-digit req number is generated in the OnSuccess of frmMaster.

UpdateIf('Domestic Shipping Requests', ID=Self.LastSubmit.ID,{'Request Number': Self.LastSubmit.ID + 10000})

 

The OnSelect of my Submit Form button is. The Collect part of the formula should be in the OnSuccess formula above, correct? Still not clear on how to write the number that is generated above into the Collect formula. Can you help me out?

Set(
    varPlaySpinner,
    true
);
    SubmitForm(frmMaster);
    Collect('Shipping Request Contents',colContents);
Set(
    varPlaySpinner,
    false
)

 

The OnSelect of my "add to collection" button is:

Collect(colContents,
{Title: tiItemDescription.Text,
Value:Value(tiValue.Text),
Quantity: Value(tiQty.Text),
TotalValue: Value(lblSubTotal.Text),
Handling:ddHandling.Selected,
UOM:tiUOM.Text,
Year: Year(Now()),
Quarter: RoundUp(Month(Now())/3, 0),
Month: Month(Now()),
       Requestor:
          {
             Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(varUser.Email),
             DisplayName: varUser.FullName,
             Department: "", 
             Email: varUser.Email, 
             JobTitle: ".", 
             Picture: "."
          },
       RequestorEmail: Lower(varUser.Email)
    });
Reset(tiItemDescription);
Reset(tiValue);
Reset(tiQty);
Reset(ddHandling);
Reset(tiUOM)

 Thank you Randy! Teresa

Hi Randy,

 

Thanks for all your help with this. Let's put off the question of how to tie the Collection to a gallery of records for now. I marked your formula as the solution for this post. Thanks for helping me figure out how to write number values in a Collection back to SharePoint!
