Use checkboxes with date picker to update collection columns

Hi all,

 

I am not even sure if I can articulate this question, but I will do my best to see if this is possible.

 

I have a single Date Picker and multiple Checkboxes that I would like to use to update individual columns in a collection with the date value based on which checkboxes are selected. For example, I have the date picker set to July 20, 2020 and checkbox 1, 2, but not 3 selected. I would like a collection to update the corresponding column for checkbox 1 and 2 with July 20, 2020. Subsequently, by updating the date picker to July 22, 202 and checkbox 2,3 but not 1 selected, the columns have data added accordingly.

 

I am an absolute beginner, so please excuse my poor explanation and terminology! Thanks in advance,


Greg

Hi @deltaformtech ,


What is the relationship between Columns and Check boxes?

I would suggest you add a logic condition to check if the check box is checked, then save the selected date to columns.

For example:

Patch(
    CollectionName,
    First(CollectionName),
    If(
        Checkbox1.Value,
        {Column1:DatePicker1.SelectedDate}
    ),
    If(
        Checkbox2.Value,
        {Column2:DatePicker1.SelectedDate}
    ), 
    If(
        Checkbox3.Value,
        {Column3:DatePicker1.SelectedDate}
    )
)

Hope this helps.

Hi @deltaformtech ,

Assuming the collection fields are data fields and the checkbox is withing a gallery based on the collection, you can Patch the dat as each box is checked. For example checkbox 1 OnCheck

 

Patch(
   YourCollection,
   ThisItem,
   {YourDateField:YourDataPickerName.SelectedDate}
)
