Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

I did another test by removing the PowerApp I created and recreated it from SharePoint Online. My missing column did appear. I took this a step further and added another column to my list from SharePoint. I am still not able to sync a new column to the PowerApp.

 

Tried to refresh the data souce and waited for a while but it just has not appeared. I'm not sure if I am missing a step or if there is an issue. 

 

Weird.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Where are you waiting for it to appear?

 

Have you tried to see if the new field appears in your data panel for the form - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/customize-forms-sharepoint

Hi sarafankit 

 

Thank you for your quick reply and link as well. Yes, clicking on the data pane I was able to see how I can make new columns visable. This link did explain that:

I appricate your quick assistance. This was a big help in understanding the behavior.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

I wonder if somebody figure out a solution for this. I am facing an issue where I have to create new data source connection SharePoint list each time I update the list. Refresh doesn work at all.

@npatel- We had a regression in this area. The hotfix should go out by tomorrow. Sorry for the trouble.

 

For now, you are following the only workaround.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

This still doesn't work, i just added a simple text column to my list, go into powerapps, refresh the data source and the new one i just added is NOT there. If i delete the data source and re add it, i have to RE DO all of variables and visible funtions. it's highly annoying to have to rebuild the form from SCRATCH each time. If i am missing something please let me know. 

 

i have tried the work around, i delete the data source, add it back, and all of the custom stuff i did such as data card sizes, their visibility on certain tabs, and more has to be re done again.
