Can you put the cursor in a field?

I want to do data entry with my app. So I want to type in name, hit tab, type in phone number, hit tab, press enter to add the data to my collection. That all works. (Though if you have a way to make enter press the button without hitting tab that would be nice)

 

My button updates my collection, then resets name, and then resets phone number. 

 

Now how do I put the cursor back in Name so I can start typing again? Is it possible?

 

Thanks

This is currently not supported. I was able to find idea for it here, where you can give it an upvote: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Focus-on-a-Control/idi-p/47436 

 

I do know we're working on making accessibility improvements across our product and having such a feature would help makers create accessible apps themselves. I'll bring it up with the owners of those areas to see how possible this is.
