how to display submitted value of a field somewhere else on the form?

hi this is actually a simple question.

 

if a user fills out a sharepoint powerapps form, i want some of the data to appear elsewhere on the form (as a summary of some fields).

 

is this possible?

Hi @cchan000 

 

For datepickers, you need to use: DataCardValue10.SelectedDate

 

Hope this Helps!

Use FormName.LastSubmit.ColumnName to fetch values of previously posted data for that user session

 

FormName = name of your Form control

ColumnName = name of column data to fetch

when i go back into sharepoint and click on a submitted entry, i want the right side (status) to show a read only summary of some of the fields in that entry so someone can quickly and understand.

Hi @cchan000 

 

If you wish to display the fields on the right menu, you can use the expression on the labels as:

"Title: "&DataCardValue7.Text  -> TextInputs

"Number of Banners: "& DataCardValue9.Selected.Value  -> Dropdown

Here, DaraCardValue7 and DataCardValue9 refers to the name of controls, please replace them with the actual names.
 
Hope this Helps!

Hey @cchan000 

 

To achieve this, you can use the below expression:
Concat(DataCardValue11.Attachments.Name,Name,Char(13))
 
This will display all the attachment names in separate lines. DataCardValue11 is the name of Attachment control in edit form.
 
Hope this Helps!
