Lists not available in SharePoint Online Data Connection

All the lists don't display for me when I connect to SharePoint Online. I don't see any "Contacts" or Calendar type Sharepoint lists. Is this a current limitation?

Yes, unfortunately today we only support custom lists that have been created in your SPO sites.  Expanding to support some of the built-in SPO list types (contacts, events, tasks, etc.) is on our backlog and we are hoping to add support for them soon.

This would be extremely beneficial, I was trying to attach to one of our sharepoint calendars myself.

Is there any kind of calendar that you can make in PowerApps? I am having a really hard time finding anything that you could use to have a calendar view in PowerApps.

Unfortunately we do not have a Calendar control today, but I would ask you to chime-in on the the PowerApps ideas section https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Add-a-calendar-view-control-for-displaying-event... as we use this feedback to determine what features we are going to tackle going forward.

For ealry adoption I think this (contact list support) is essential for business users. One of the first uses of sharepoint for SMEs is creating a contact list. To have a mobile ready version which is more accessible that sharepoint would be a good move in my opinion.
