SubmitForm vs. Power Automate/Flow Stored Procedure

I built an app using Power Apps and a SQL database. It works well for the most part but it appears some entries get deleted randomly even though the end user does not have the ability to delete an entry. I am wondering if there are any benefits to maybe using Power Automate Stored SQL Procedure to add and edit a row vs. the Submit Form function?

 

Thanks in advance!

The main benefits are control. Using SQL in PowerApps is a very powerful connection. I always use my own INSERT and UPDATE stored procedures in PowerApps simply because I know exactly what they're doing and it makes it easier to troubleshoot.

Problems you're experiencing are hard to troubleshoot because you can't really see the 'processing' side of SubmitForm in the same way you can with a Power Automate stored procedure.

On the other hand, SubmitForm has benefits too. It's very simple and offers an easier maintenance plan. If you have a lot of hands in the development of an app, SubmitForm would be a best practice.
