Auto Save Behavior

Configuring how frequently the client saves the form data

This feature does not support single field validation.

Changing this behavior can change how often the app saves data to the backend. The configuration can be done in both layout-sets.json and Settings.json.

// layout-sets.json
{
  "sets": [...],
  "uiSettings": {
    "autoSaveBehavior": "onChangePage"
  }
}
// Settings.json
{
  "pages": {
    "autoSaveBehavior": "onChangePage"
  }
}

onChangeFormData (Default)

Saves data to the backend on every interaction with a form component. This is the default behavior.

onChangePage

Saves data to the backend on navigation between pages. This includes navigating with the NavigationBar-component, NavigationButtons-component and the Back button Icon.

Improves server performance on high demand

On change page behavior can improve server performance in Azure if your app has many users in a short period of time. However you must consider that the app will not save the form if the user hasn’t navigated between pages or submitted. A page refresh will then loose the data.
