What is the current best practice to ensure that a patch to a SharePoint list is successful? I am building a dynamic expense reporting app and it is vital that submitted expenses are stored or that the user is notified that the expense was not stored so that they can try submitting again later. I want to account for internet connection issues and any other issues that could occur that would interfere with a patch.
Go to Solution. The documentation for the Errors function states the following:. However, this currently doesn't work for network issues I've created a bug in the product team to fix it.
As a workaround, you can also check the result of the Patch call - it returns the object as changed in the server. In network outage situations, the result is null. So you can use both cases to determine whether the Patch succeeded or not, something along the lines of the expression below. View solution in original post.
Thank you for this CarlosFigueira.
PowerApps Patch Function with examples
I have part of my app using a custom flow in order to upload an image to a SharePoint document library. I want to have the app wait until the image is present in the document library before navigating to a different screen.
Do you have any advice on how this could be done? You can return a value from the custom flow to PowerApps - so you can have the flow return a flag indicating that the upload is completed that you can use in your app.

Is there some type of WaitUntil boolean function in PowerApps or a way to do something similar? There's no WaitUntil function or similar feel free to create a new feature request in the PowerApps Ideas board for this.
The closest thing that exists today would be to use a timer control, that every time the duration ends it would check whether the data is there. The timer would be set to repeat, and when the data is present it would set a flag that would "turn off" its repeat, and a flag to indicate to the app that the data is present.
Hi Carlos, I'm using this logic to check for a successfull patch, but am currently experiencing errors when I'm patching a collection to an online data source, wondering if you have any solutions for this? What kind of errors are you seeing? How could you do this in a ForAll loop? Can you know the result of each patch or only the loop?
One possible solution is to have a collection that would store the results of all patch invocations. At the end you have a collection with two columns: id and patchResult. If you want to know which ones failed, you can filter that collection:.

Modules in this learning path. Introduction to Power Platform. Introduction to Common Data Service.Are you a builder of great things in InfoPath who's looking to learn how to deliver those great things on a more robust platform? Like most InfoPath power users, you've been using your unique skill set to build awesome forms for a while. You're very satisfied with your forms, but you also know their limitations: the "classic" feel, a less-than-ideal experience for mobile devices, the uncertainty of their future viability, and always being trapped in a box when it comes to connecting to other services without writing code.
The Power Apps team has heard these and many other challenges. They've worked hard to incorporate a better experience and enable you to create canvas apps by leveraging your existing business and technology skills. By using Power Apps, you can quickly build and deploy the right business solutions without writing code.
Power Apps enable a powerful future Power Apps is a Software as a Service SaaS platform that's designed to let you quickly build high-functioning apps that you can deploy to the web, SharePoint, DynamicsTeams, Power BI, or a mobile device without any extra work. Because you can deploy them by just giving someone the URL to your published app, they're also just as easy to update.
Share your apps Have you ever tried to build an app and then publish it for iOS or Android devices? It's complicated. If you want to deploy a second app or update that existing one, your users must take a lot more steps. Not with Power Apps. Your users install Power Apps Mobile on their devices and sign in.
Voila, they have all of the highly functional apps that you have shared with them. In the future, when you update those apps or push new apps out to them, those apps will show up on your users' devices.
Mobile apps without the pain of managing devices is a big win for you and your business. Speaking of mobile With Power Apps, you can leverage the power of the user's mobile device. You have access to acceleration, the camera, the compass, the connection information, and location signals: all from within your app.
This opens up a whole world of possibilities for building apps to get work done. Of course, touch functionality is just automatic in Power Apps: nothing extra to code when you build your app. Get out of the box With InfoPath, you normally work with data from one source. However, things got tricky if you wanted to update another source such as a SharePoint list in another site collection or connect to external services.
Concepts such as code behind kept you awake at night. Power Apps is designed to allow you to work with multiple data sources and service connections in one app. Currently, more than connectors support a combination of on-premises and cloud data, including Microsoft Office and Azure services such as Power Automate and Dynamics You can also connect to a multitude of third-party services such as Dropbox, Google, Salesforce, Slack, and other popular targets.
Now you can build solutions to scale where your users need to take you, not just where the original data lived. Power Apps is a great tool for making your SharePoint experience better in two ways. You have the option to either customize the forms for a SharePoint list or to create a standalone app for working with SharePoint data.
Customizing a SharePoint form is great if you want to customize how users add, view, or edit items in a list that they use for their everyday work. Creating a Power Apps canvas app from SharePoint allows you to run the app by itself on a mobile device. You can also embed the app in a SharePoint page.When our northern lights tour was cancelled we were given information via the hotel, a follow up phone call to the NV office was efficiently dealt with.
At all stages through the booking process our NV advisor, Audur, was very helpful. It all made our wedding anniversary trip a very enjoyable relaxed holiday. Liz, United Kingdom South Iceland at Leisure - Winter, February 2016 We had a great time in Iceland and a lot of that was down to the email discussions, planning and preparation done by Sigfus on our behalf before the trip. Everything ran smoothly and the whole trip was a joy.
It was a pleasure to be able to meet him and thank him in person when we dropped our mobile phone off at the Nordic Visitor office at the end of our trip. He was friendly, nice, and funny. My husband and I had a blast riding with him in the van. My travel consultant, Bjarni is perfect, he answered all my questions in a timely manner and he was able to customized my itinerary to accommodate my stay for an extra night at the hotel.
Erica and Christopher, United States Iceland Winter World, January 2016 Prior to the start of the trip, the communication with our booking agent was fantastic- Hilmar is great.
He was able to accommodate our early departure time and rearranged our booking so we could fully enjoy the Blue Lagoon. He also gave us helpful information about trying to book a whale watching tour. The taxi driver from the airport (Iceland Taxi) was also fantastic, very approachable and very informative.
We felt like we were travelling in style. Also a great souvenir. Had an amazing adventure. Can't wait to go back to Iceland and do the whole circle drive. Our family loved it. The authentic dog sleigh ride was tops. Gary, Norway Moonlight Safari, November 2015 When I had questions they were answered quickly.We would like to thank you for your efficiency and charm, for providing sufficient assistance at the start of our holiday to enable us to enjoy it to the full and 'independently', I.
Without further assistance during the holiday. We felt that the hospitality and leisure industries of many other countries would benefit by learning about Nordic Visitor's professionalism.
The service we received from Cicci was excellent : prompt replies to my email questions and up-to-date information about everything. She was extremely helpful, pleasant and efficient in all she did. We typically would never book a vacation through a travel site due to thinking that we could book a better vacation for ourselves. Since this was our honeymoon, we did not want to deal with the stress of booking everything ourselves and deal with a wedding.
Everything went flawlessly from the moment that we arrived to Iceland to the moment that we left. We could never have planned a trip like Nordic Visitor planned for us. I could go on and on about how amazing everything was but the bottom line is that we would definitely book with Nordic Visitor again if we had the chance.
Probably the most important service I received was Cecilia's prompt answers to all my questions. My requests were handled expeditiously. As for the accommodations, they ranged from very good to excellent. Of particular note is the fact that Cecilia had to react quickly to hotel employees' strike at one of the hotels. She quickly found arranged for me to stay at another hotel, which was most impressive (both her ability to improvise and the quality of the hotel).
She was also quite helpful in recommending certain places of interest to visit and the advisability of purchasing city passes for transportation and sightseeing. I loved how we used a different day tour agent for each of our planned trips, as it made it varied and we could compare how big the groups were.
Each one were amazing, friendly, informative and spoke very good English. The packages are great on there own, but the fact that they could be customised to what we wanted made it amazing. The service with yourselves is efficient and informative, with quick responses by email. Our whole holiday package was well planned, organised and went well stress free. Our Nordic Visitor travel assistant was Audur Steinberg.
She was extremely helpful, answered all of my questions, was very friendly, very informative, and worked hard to get us a customized trip. Honestly, my wife and I had been planning to go to Argentina, I was planning the trip, but the travel assistant I was using was very unresponsive, unhelpful, and seemed annoyed when I would email questions.
I came across a Nordic Visitor ad online and decided to check it out. Because Audur was so wonderfully helpful, I talked with my wife and we decided to drop Argentina and go to Iceland instead.
So thank you Audur.
