Bug? Flow names doesn't update

Changing the name of your flow after you've added it in your Powerapp seems incredibly buggy. It doesn't update in the app sometimes even if you remove it, worse yet if you delete and add it again it shows up as the new name in the autogenerated Flowname.Run() command (that by the way also overwrites any code you had on your button before) but fails to run. It seems to me that a lot of time you have to create duplicates of your collections, flows etc, just because it doesn't work the first time around.

For example; You cannot delete collections. You can clear the data in them, but the column definitions will stay the same. That means anything that requires a change to those definitions (such as running a stored procedure using flows) will result in you having to rename the collection entirely and remove references to it in every other function in your app....

Re: Bug? Flow names doesn't update

HI @agneum ,

Do you add a flow connection within your app?

 

It is a known issue that, the changes you made to a flow would not be applied to the corresponding flow connection you added within a canvas app.

As an fixed solution, you need to re-create a new app, and then add the corresponding flow connection again.
