My name is Andrew Hess and I have been creating Power Apps and Power Platform tutorials. This video sparked from a question in the comments from one of my other videos. How to write multiple lines at a single time to a datasource?

Today we go over using Collect and ForAll statements in 2 different ways to write to our datasource which was SharePoint.

Collect from a Form:

Collect(colMenu,{Title:DataCardValue1.Text,FoodType:DataCardValue2.Text,Allergies:DataCardValue3.Text, Calories:DataCardValue4.Text})

ForAll from a Form Collection:

ForAll(colMenu,Patch(Menu,{Title:Title,FoodType:FoodType,Allergies:Allergies,Calories:Calories}));

Clear(colMenu)

ForAll using a Gallery:

ForAll(Gallery2.AllItems,Patch(Menu,{Title:TextInput1.Text,FoodType:TextInput1_1.Text,Allergies:TextInput1_2.Text,Calories:TextInput1_3.Text}));

Clear(myInput)
