Repeating Table

Deleted
Not applicable

All,

 

i am creating a new Form for a Sharepoint list.

 

I have one table with three fields that I only want to be filled out once.

 

I have a second table with 7 fields.  i would like for this table to be repeating, giving the person filling it out the option to add another set of the same 7 fields.

 

Then upon saving/submitting, a new item is created in the SP list for each row in the repeating section.

 

I have seen a couple of links in this forum but none of them includes a usable solution for someone like me who is very new to PowerApps.

Hi Zane,

 

To do this you need to create two lists in SharePoint, one for the 3 fields and the second for the repeating fields. In the repeating list you need to have a Lookup field which links this list to the first list.

 

In PowerApps you need to link the two fields to each other using the lookup field ID.

 

If I understand correctly then it is something like this https://youtu.be/5GGn7QAI8WI 

 

In the video I have created a custom form, but in SharePoint you do this by creating the Power App from the first list (the one with 3 fields)

 

I hope this helps

Hi Zane,

 

If you are not fluent in developing Power Apps you can use a third party solution - Sintel Forms.

It is free for up to 2 forms.

 

Here is the article describing how to configure related lists
