Unable to Delete a Date

Hi All,

 

I am using SharePoint List as my data source, and I have date columns which are not mandatory field for the record, everything works perfectly when I add a record, delete a record from PowerApps.

 

When I try to edit the record, it works fine except when I delete a date, for example, I already have a date "4/15/2021", now I want to empty this field, as I don't need the date anymore, I can operate in PowerApps with no errors, but when you come back to the record in PowerApps or in SharePoint list, the date "4/15/2021" is still there.

 

This happens as well when the data source is in Excel in OneDrive. Do you have similar experience? Thanks.

Turn on Formula-level error management in Settings then Patch Blank() back to SP as your new Date, eg

 

// Example code
Patch( yourSPList, Lookup( yourSPList, ID = refID), {yourDateColumn: Blank()})

@Anonymous ,

 

Thanks, but I am using SubmitForm() function instead of Patch, not sure how it works.

For the Update property of the DataCard that relates to your date field, write some logic the sends back Blank if the date is deleted, eg

 

If( IsBlank(DataCardValue1), Blank(), DataCardValue1.SelectedDate )
