Tracking

I’m a new PowerApps user and would like information on how to track when someone uses the Search option to view information in an app I’m building. I’ve only found information relating to tracking modifications. 
Thank you

Hi @JoyK ,

The way I do it (not on Search, but the principle is the same) is to have an "Audit Log" separate list with the action taken Patched into a text field (a new record). The user's name and the date and time are automatically in the Created and Created by fields. You can use the built-in Title field on (for example the OnChange of the Search box)

Patch(
   SearchAuditList,
   Defaults(SearchAuditList),
   {Title:Self.Text}
)
