Would be great to have something similar to the below picture to be added to text controls so users can bullet some of their text. This doesn't seem to be possible at the moment or i can't find any information on how to do this.
Presently, it is extremely difficult to force OnStart events and OnVisible events to predictably fire when going between development and preview modes. Strongly recommend a simple Restart button that allows the OnStart event to fire predictably when entering Preview mode.
I would love to be able to set a Regular Expression (for a format string) on an input textbox like "###-##-####" for SSN or "(999) 999-9999" for a telephone number. I was directed to post my suggested idea here as I understand that Power Apps does not yet support formatting regular expressions.
Thanks and keep up the great work with this excellent app.
As a side note, I did see a suggestion to NOT include all of a sharepoint's list items when connecting to a list as I currently am working on one that has 72 items and it takes a while to load up.
Currently the PowerApps Custom Form in SharePoint will only work if the modern experience is enabled. If the user clicks the "Return to classic SharePoint" in the browser then the out of the box SharePoint list form is used instead of the PowerApps Custom Form. If a PowerApps Custom Form is being used in a list then the Classic toggle link shouldn't prevent the custom form from being displayed.
It will be great to have an ability to disable (by some property of an text input control) on-screen touch keyboard for some text input controls, where user should use handheld on-device barcode scanner, or other types of input
(which then by device will be converted to a text string (wedge))
It will increase usability for applications used for barcode scanning, etc.
As the result of co-operation with @BitLord69, we experimented with patching multiple records using the following syntax:
Patch(Data source, Table of record primary IDs, Table of change records)
Where the second and third parameter have the same number of rows.
Well, performance is awful. It seems that in any case PowerApps is still patching one record at a time, since the gallery showing 'Data source' was flickering and updating as more and more records were updated.
Suggest updating the connector to patch all the records in one server call, performance would be much improved.
Not a PowerApps idea but a PowerUsers Community for PowerApps idea.
Think about it. Most of the people in this community are here to ask questions about their problems regarding PowerApps and most of them are essentially repeats. For instance, for the past week (I've been bored), I've seen the following questions asked repeatedly:
Simulating table join operations using the in operator or the AddColumns() function.
Referencing and using look-up values from Sharepoint.
Working with Sharepoint look-up values and Dropdowns. (Seriously, what's the point of the abstraction with connectors when you're going to have to make connector-specific fixes anyway)
Ways of exiting the app using Launch() and Exit()
How to use the apparently mysterious Patch() function.
Having a FAQ section that's only controlled and managed by PA Staff / Community Moderators for QC would be great. Users can suggest posts they think should be in FAQ and the Community UI can bring it into attention. Got a serious bug in the latest release? Put it there. Got a commonly known limitation of PA? Put it there.
I'd like to be able to compress / resize JPEG images being uploaded from the camera or gallery. Having to upload 4MB pictrue captured from the phone camera is frustrating for the field agents with limited (slow) network coverage. Being able to downscale and change the JPEG quality to 50% *before* pushing it to the server will help a lot improving the speed.
I have received some feedback from my app users that it is sometimes hard to tell when image or text is clickable. On the desktop version, when you hover over an image the icon remains the same or when you hover a text it changes to the edit text icon, the mouse icon seems to change to hand icon only when hovering over objects like Icons or Controls like Button control.
Example 1 The text in the Org Browser by Microsoft says View My Profile, when hovering over it with mouse, the mouse icon changes to select text icon.
Example 2 When using images as buttons, the mouse will stay as a cursor and will not change to the hand icon.
Example 3 Hovering mouse over the button. It changes to hand icon and it is clear that you can click it.
This is not a problem on the Phone since you click with your fingers but it confuses the users on desktop. Would it be possible to make all objects with functions in OnSelect property to have a <a> tag or something similar that it would force the mouse cursor to change into hand?
