Submit Button on App

Hi All, I am brand new to power apps and have just created a form as an app from scratch, I dont want it to lnk to any data as its just a free txt/name and date fields.  How do I create a submit button on the end of the form and then where and how does the data submitted on the app get stored?

Thanks, Clare.

Re: Submit Button on App

Hi Clare,
                               
We could use SubmitForm function in the Onselect Property of a Button control to save any changes in a From control to the data source. So you should connect a data source to you App and use SubmitForm function to save data to your data source. This article about NewForm, SubmitForm, and RestForm functions in PowerApps would be a reference for you.

Re: Submit Button on App

Hi

 

You have 2-options to start with:

1. Create apps from data (either from Excel in Dropbox, Onedrive or Entities from CDM)

- In this case, you shall create a Table in Excel and save them in Dropbox or OneDrive, connected to your PowerApps

- Connection: this will be directed to web.powerapps. com for you to connect yo your desired dropbox or onedrive account

In this case, PowerApps will auto-generate for you NewForm, Submit Form, EditForm

 

2. Create apps from scratch.

- As above, you shall either have Excel (with Table format) in Dropbox / OneDrive (Conencted earlier) or Entities created (in CDM)

- Then, once you had launch PowerApps, goto Datasource, connect to desired Dropbox / OneDrive / CDM, and choose the Excel or Entities which contain your tables / Entities

In this case, you got to design your own, especially using Context Variable, etc.

 

Hope this helps in giving you a clearer picture of creating (a) Standard Apps (b) Apps as you wish.

 

Thanks and have a nice day.

- Simplest way of creating apps will be: A browse screen (add a Text Gallery, and selec the Items, that's the table), then add another screen for you to navigate to from your Gallery (for Viewing or Editing) or Add additional data

(View: in one screen; Edit / Add New in another screen)
