Submiting new form from Gallery Field

Hi All,


New to PowersApps and have tried to learn everything from scratch. Currently, I am facing abit of a stumbling which I cant find any solution else where!


So he is the problem :

In my screen I have 2 gallery (Stocktaketree) and (Branchlist). Both are linked and are fields in my sharepoint list. Selection of stoctaketree will selected the time of field in the branchlist.  Select of branchlist will open a form(Stocktakeform).



Now if I used EDIT.Form, everything works fine with first 2 column (Tree and Branch :both fields selected in Gallery). However, I need to add record and not overwrite as I need all the data. I am forming a trendline of the data over line. EG Number of corals alive on Top Branch from Tree 3. 


So I use  NEW.FORM OnSelect for Branchlist. Default mode for StocktakeForm = Formmode.New.


However when I proceed with that and check my sharepoint list , the first 2 columns TREE and Branch from the Gallery field is missing. It fills up everything except the 2 field selected from the 2 Galleries.


Attached below my snapshot of my sharepoint list. I had to uses distinct in the Stocktaketree gallery so as not to repeat the tree numbers. 




So I am hoping if anyone know another way around it? Maybe I need to redesign my list? OR redesign the UI? I kinda like this UI and would like to stay put. I could create a new record by putting every  fields in forms - makes it easier but I like this current UI.


Anyways, I recreated an empty list to start things off so that I have the trees and branch fields.


Thank you in advance for any sort of help!

It looks like you can normalize your table to at least two tables,  You shouldn't need to redesign your UI.  Please see my blog posts here as how to design your lists and implement them in PowerApps.
