Still no solution for setting date fields to blank ?

Hi all,

I've been looking through all possibles posts on this subject in this forum trying to find a solution that actually works for setting a date to blank in a SharePoint list. But it seems it's not the case yet...

Anyone would have an update on this ?

HI @R3dKap 

 

Please use the below expression while submitting the date to Sharepoint:
If(IsBlank(DataCardValue8.SelectedDate),Blank(),DataCardValue8.SelectedDate)
Here, DataCardValue8 is the name of my Date Picker control.
Also, please enable Formula Level Error Management in the Experimental Features inside Advanced Settings. This is a mandatory step to follow.MicrosoftTeams-image (107).png

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255,

Just tested it and, indeed, it works... Smiley Happy

I had seen one or two posts suggesting this 'workaround' but didn't pay any attention to it since I didn't seen any link between this error handling parameter and the fact that it does reset a date field to a blank value.

I'm really puzzled though to see that it does work.

I'd love to have someone from the MS PowerApps Team (@TopShelf-MSFT maybe) to give us an explanation on this particuliar behavior... Smiley Happy

Thanks anyway for pushing the tip back into my post,

Emmanuel

@kris974 ,

In the Update of the DataCard the Date Picker is contained in.
