Timestamp and User Id record upon submit ?

Hi, 

 

I am new to PowerApps. I have created a powerapp's by connecting to sql server.

My query is, I need to record the timestamp and userid when they update the data through the apps.

When they select the submit form, it should record the timestamp and user id and save it database.

I have herewith attached a screenshot containing the columns name in the database.

Re: Timestamp and User Id record upon submit ?

Since you are already using a form, I suggest you add 2 Datacards for the Time stamp and the user ID.

In the Default of the Datacardvalue of the UserId : User().Email

 

In the Default of the Datacardvalue of the Time stamp put the variable name: TimeNow

 

Finally on the submit Icon, create a variable before submit form as;

Set(TimeNow,Text(Now(),"hh:mm:ss"));SubmitForm(YourFormName)

 

 

Thus before the Form is submitted, it create the current time to be submitted.
