Missing first column of Sharepoint list as datasource

Hi, 

 

I am trying to use a group Sharepoint list as a datasource in Powerapps, unfortunately I have acess to all elements except the first column (see attached files).

Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks, 

 

Julie

Re: Missing first column of Sharepoint list as datasource

Good news 🙂 Just the experience. Now you know PowerApps with SPO is using internal names that you can find at the end of the column URL for example (List settings>select a column and the internal name is at the end of the URL, this is what PowerApps will see and suggest).

As a best practice i would also recommend not to use "-" or spaces in column names as PowerApps will then display strange names with x0020_ characters for example.

Hello @JulieTE,

It is not clear to me why the column is not accessible. I noticed however that the field "Author" is suggested to you by the Studio (in the second picture) while that column is clearly not in your list (picture one). Are you sure the "Audit 55+1 - Area_Auditor" is indeed the correct list name (from the second picture)?

Hi Julie

 

First column of sp list is called Title (or Titre). PowerApps uses the internal name to refers to that column even if you rename it. So try using Title 🙂

Yes it works !  How did you figure it out ? That behaviour is kind of stupid, I've been searching a long time and it complicated the project so much.

Thank you !
