Update many records at once

Hello everybody

I created an app to check for availability dates for staff on certain dates. People can log in with a password and are shown all the open dates for the next few months en they can fill in a checkbox to show if they are available. When they fill in the complete list those records are imported in another table in excel which shows the dates and if the employee is available. There will be over 100 records imported in the table. This takes minutes because i think for each record powerapps callls the server again and again.

I have searched on this forum and the only sollution i have found is a old solution from "Meneghino" in this topic But i dont understand how to do this en i don't use mysql.

Is there already any way to update a lot of records with one server call because this will save lots of time? Or does someone know a better idea to resolve my problem

Thank you in advance

Re: Update many records at once

Hi @rogierv ,

Do you want to update multiple different records at the same time?

I suggest you use the function of ForAll and Patch.

Here's a similar example for your reference:

Re: Update many records at once



Thank you for your reply but the problem is not the actual update. This works fine but with a collection update with 100 rows with each 5 records it takes minutes because it is not done within one server call( i assume this is the reason it takes so long)
