SubmitForm doesn't creat a Sharepoint item


  First, sorry for my English and thanks for your help

  When I submit a form to create a Sharepoint list item from Power Apps, sometimes, rarely, commands listed in the field “on success” are executed, but the Sharepoint item isn’t created. I checked the FormMode and the DisplayMode, all seems Ok (Default FormMode on New and the form is initialised all the time by NewForm).

  I already had a look to some discussions on this forum, but I didn’t find the same issue. I can give more information if you have questions


  Thanks for your help

Hi @QuYoussef 


Can you set the OnFailure property of the form to

        Column & ": " & Message


If any errors, at least we can able to see. Is it happening all the time or any pattern?





Hello @StalinPonnusamy


  Thank you very much for your answer.


I will set the OnFailure as mentioned and give you a feed back.

I m almost certain that the OnSuccess only is executed because all the commands set in OnSuccess are executed and not those set in OnFailure.


There is no error message.


I tried to reproduce the issue but couldn't, I really expect that it happens randomly (It happened 5 times, the apps is used by 10-15 users since 6 months and the lists don't exceed 2000 lines...)


I think that we can rephrase the question as: When the SubmitForm don't creat a ligne in a Sharepoint list even if a form is a NewForm and even it returns OnSuccess ?


Perhaps servers slowdowns 


To maintain the app online, I now stock the title of the line to be created and creat a flow to check if done, advert me if not, but I think that the code in the OnFailure you gave is in the same philosophy 🙂

Hi @QuYoussef


One thing we can do, Validation the inputs before Submit form() and On failure (If any Server failure/clutch) we can send it to Power Automate since it has retry automatically.



Tks @StalinPonnusamy

All the inputs are validated before submitting. I put a disabled button to submit which can't be enabled until the 6 data of columns are ok.


The thing is the form is submitted correctly, there is no OnFailure, but the line is not created in the SharePoint list! It's a little bit strange! And it happened only 5 times, all on October 5th between 11h22 and 11h32 GMT
