PowerApp is not updating Sharepoint list when submit

Hello everyone, i have question about powerapp and sharepoint list, so the scenario goes like this:

 

I have list created in Sharepoint with customized columns and so on, i have generated the list to Powerapp and everything works fine, i can see the current list on powerapp and so on. My problem is that, when i make new item and press "create" it does create and comes up on pwerapp list BUT i have to refresh every time browser where the Sharepoint List is open so i can see new just created item in there. Is there way when you make new item in powerapp to be auto-updated in Sharepoint list for no need to refresh browser to appear??

 

submit code is SubmitForm(EditForm1)

i will need to come back on this and say i found solution and where was the issues.

 

Sharepoint list will NOT REFRESH if you have ID column visible and generated in PowerApp, so if you want that Sharepoint List is displaying automatically your created list then HIDE ID column!

Can you add Refresh(DataSource) in the OnSuccess event of your form?

Re: PowerApp is not updating Sharepoint list when submit

yes, thats the idea i need, so as i can see this is just not possible with default form list RIP, one option is to create all over again and Flow to work in background, or is there any other way myb or idea?

Hi @Adi007 ,

 

Are you using the standalone app? If so, then this should be expected behavior. The changes you made from standalone app won't show from the data source before a refreshing of the data source.

 

But if you mean the custom form created from SharePoint list site,  then the changes should show immediately after you submitting them.

Hi @Adi007 ,

 

Then a standalone app it is. This is expected result. You will need to manually refresh the web browser to make the update show in SharePoint.
