Submit a Collection to a SharePoint List

I am currently working on App designed to log an outbound call and record data. It has multiple DropBoxes, comboboxs, a date picker, and a text input for comments about the call. Many of the DropBoxes contain info from different sharpoint lists. I have a collection created so that once everything is entered the employees can submit the data.

 

I want to send the collection to a SharePoint list so that I can use that info to make monthly reports, graphs, etc... Is there anyway to do this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Submit a Collection to a SharePoint List

Hi @Wowwowha

 

You would set up a Sharepoint list (for example named CallLog with all of the fields that you want to collect and specify the type of data you will be collecting. Then, on a blank screen, insert the appropriate controls: Dropboxes, Comboboxes, TextInput boxes, etc.  You would add a button with its OnSelect property Patch(CallLog,Defaults(CallLog),{datefield: DatePicker1.SelectedDate, employee: Dropdown1.Selected.Value,message: TextInput1.Text,etc.})  For more information on the Patch command, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-patch.   Also an excellent resource for creating your own forms can be found at https://baizini-it.com/blog/index.php/2017/09/28/powerapps-101-create-your-own-forms/

 

Tip: For the most efficient way to work with data from other lists, save the ID instead of the Value and use the LookUp function in Galleries and DataTables to display the names.
