Unable to submit multiple forms

Hello guys,

I have a canvas app with 5 forms on the same entity (Opportunities). While submitting all the forms together with the Patch function, I'm getting an error message and the opportunity record is not being created.

Is there any other way of submitting multiple forms using a single button?

 

TIA

Hi @PrashantIyer ,

Do you split your Opportunities fields into multiple Edit forms?

Do you want to submit multiple form data into single one record in your Opportunities Entity?

 

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, please make sure you have enabled all available Required fields of your Opportunities Entity within your multiple Edit forms.

 

On your side, please make sure all Required fields in your Opportunities Entity has been enabled within your multiple Edit forms.

Hello,

 

Why don't you just use the SubmitForm(FormX); function to submit the different forms ?

@carfupis correct - you should use the SubmitForm function to correctly submit the data in your Forms.

 

While you can technically Patch the values in the form, this isn't a recommended approach, and defeats the advantages of the Form control (validation, error capture, required fields).

Hi,

 

Thanks for your response. I transferred the contents of the 5 forms to a single scroll-able form and used the SubmitForm function. 

Yet, I'm getting the same error.

Any mandatory fields on the datasource side which are not filled on the canvas app side before submitting ?

@PrashantIyer 

Check your forms for a required field that isn’t being specified.
