In this video we will explore how to save Power Apps form data as Draft.
We will leverage the PowerApps form control SubmitForm function and explore the options for saving data as Draft in SharePoint list. We will also apply filters to show Draft items that are Created By the current logged in User.
Save as Draft allows user to save their data without completing all the form data or form required field validations. The users can get back to the forms in draft & continue from where they left off and submit the form. Save as Draft feature is useful in scenarios of large or complex Power Apps forms.
