Create one SharePoint list item from multiple screens using "Form" control.

I’m building PowerApps app with 3 screens. as a data source, using one SharePoint custom list which has columns named A, B, C, D, and Attachments.

(Actually almost 100 column SharePoint has, don’t want to show all in a one screen)

 

Every 3 screens are added “Form control” and displays “Screen1: column A, B”, “Screen2: column C”, and “Screen3: column D, Attachments”.

Is this possible to build this type of App?

Also, each screen has “Tab” button which allows users to seamlessly move around when they input data and only screen 3 has “Submit form” button.

 

Putting “Form control” in screen1 is fine but how I can marge all other data inputted in screen2 and screen 3 and submit to One SharePoint item record?

I want to use “Form control” for screen 2 and screen 3 but wonder how...

 

Thanks.

Re: Create one SharePoint list item from multiple screens using "Form" control.

Hi @Sam44,

 

With this scenario, you cannot use SubmitForm function to submit the item now. You need to use Patch instead.

 

The formula to save data to SharePoint should be:

Patch(ListName,Defaults(ListName),EditForm1.Updates,EditForm2.Updates,EditForm2.Updates)

Remember you also need to add the NewForm(EditForm2);NewForm(EditForm3) and EditForm(EditForm2);EditForm(EditForm3) in the formulas that used to navigate to the Edit Screens.
