Perform custom updates in a Power Apps canvas app

April 8, 2020

With some Power Apps canvas apps a form is not the solution. This module will focus on how to perform custom updates when your data is not in a form.

In this module, you will:

  • Use the Patch function to update your data
  • Understand how the Defaults function is used to create new records with Patch
  • Utilize the Remove and RemoveIf functions to delete records
  • Determine whether to use Clear and Collect or ClearCollect in their scenario

When building canvas apps in Power Apps, you go to Galleries to display records from your data source and Forms to view, create, and edit an individual record, but sometimes forms are not enough. In those scenarios, Power Apps has functions for updating your tabular data sources directly.
