When my users are filling in the entity form in the power app portal they might need to switch a language to understand the content but if they will, the data will be lost. The form is very long and to get the "Submit" button a user must click the "Next" button many times.
I am wondering is it possible to have a warning message for users in powerapps portal when a user changes a language a kind of "Click Submit button before switching a language or your data will be lost".
Also, I am thinking about having a custom "Submit" button or moving the default submit button - have it in every tab of the entity form.
Can anybody help with ideas on how we can have an Intermediate save? Thank you in advance

Thank you for reply,
Should I check the check box for the action configuration of the "Submit" button?
I didn't quite understand the result of the checkbox. If you could provide a screenshot or a short video it will be helpful
that check box will add a validation not in regards the submit button, but it is in regards the HTML Form Post/Submit.
once you enabled this option, if you make changes to your form and try to close the browser/tab/go to a different page or whatever you do that will leave the page, it will prompt the below confirmation
@OliverRodrigues Thank you very much, now I understand that I just needed to check the "additional settings" checkbox without choosing any button. I was trying to modify the fields in the screenshot but no changes are being applied after publishing
I was thinking to modify the text of the message if possible.
And in the Japanese page I expected to see the message in Japanese, or it depends on the browser language
I attached the screenshot
exactly, there is no need of adding additional buttons
I do remember in the past I tried using those fields to set my custom messages, but I am nearly sure it won't work. The reason for this is because this is more a browser functionality and you can't really change the texts that it shows (you can give it a try).
I tried to change all the possible fields but it didn't work.
Anyway I can show this to my customer as a variant.
This oob feature is not always useful. For, instance my entity form has steps on tabs
And when I hit the "next" button, the warning message triggers and it is a bad experience for user
hi @tetiana_komar I don't think that's to be expected
the next button should act like a form submit, and that message shouldn't be coming up
can you maybe try with a new web form, but this time untick the "auto generate steps" and create just one/two steps as a test
if you still face the same issue I would recommend opening a support ticket with MS
I am working with entity form, not a web-form. If I uncheck the checkbox "generate steps on tabs" i will have no "Next" button, only "submit"
p.s. I saw your training
