I'm building an app, which writes record into a Sharepoint List. Each record represents a task, and each task is having a date. I have raised some questions as per here for the recurrence records, and it works: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Multiple-Sharepoint-List-item-by-PowerApps-or...
However, users love the idea and asks for more. lol. They would like the recurrence to be defined as flexible as we do meeting request in Outlook.
Can anyone share your idea? or even sample with me?
Hi @gavinleung ,
Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?
Do you want the recurrence to be defined as flexible? What do you mean?
Currently, I afraid that there is no direct way to define the recurrence flexibly within PowerApps app. As an available solution, I think two DatePicker controls could achieve your needs.
On your side, you could add two DatePicker controls (DatePicker1 & DatePicker2) within your app, One is for Start date, another is for End Date.
After that, you could select the Start Date and End Date of the event recurrence using the DatePicker controld.
Please check and see if my response within the following threads would help in your scenario:
Hi @v-xida-msft , I have a Sharepoint List which has the following columns:
Task - text
Assignment Date - Date/Time
Assigned To - Person
I'm developing a task management app. The team leader defines the tasks to each of his team members. So tasks are repetitive in patterns like daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly and etc. In my current design, I allow the leader to choose Daily, Weekly and Monthly adding "1", "7" and "30" respectively in the Assignment Date, and the leader to input the number of occurence in a text box. And that will create multiple records in the Sharepoint List accordingly.
So now, the requirements become more complicated. Say for example, the Leader wants to create a task every Wed; the Leader wants to create a bi-weekly task until the end of 2019, my app cannot handle these situation at the moment. So that's why I want to make something like making a recurring appointment on Outlook.
I understand creating something like Outlook will be hard, but I think there were some experiences on the field who should have similar requirements.
