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 (@Anonymous maybe) to give us an explanation on this particuliar behavior... Smiley Happy

Thanks anyway for pushing the tip back into my post,

Emmanuel

Hello both,

 

Where do you actually put the formula in power app? I believe I need to

1. select the Card

2. Advanced

3. but then I dont know where add this formula?

 

Thank you

@kris974 ,

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

Hello @R3dKap 

Thank you for the solution. This seems to have worked for me. I wanted to confirm that I am putting this code in the right place. I put this If(IsBlank(DataCardValue67.SelectedDate),Blank(),DataCardValue67.SelectedDate); in the OnSave field. Is this the right place? Do I need to add it anywhere else?

Hi @nmz027,

No you're not putting it in the right place. You should put it in the datacard's Update property.

In fact I'm not even sure that this code is still needed once you have enabled the Formula-level error management... 🙂
