Sharepoint List wont allow me to create new record or edit old records

This is the first time i have worked with Powerapps and wanted to do a little testing to get familiar. So I took a Sharepoint online list and customized it in Powerapps by just changing the color, saved and published.  Now in SPO when I select this list from the Lists drop down it wont let me create a New record or edit a old one. If i click on new or edit, nothing happens.  However, I have this list displayed on the Home page and from the Home Page I can Add a new record and Edit old records.  see attached screen shots.

These screen shots are all from SharePoint. Did you do the one where you clicked on your list and did "Customize forms"?

 

If so, you need to click on PowerApps/Customize forms and look there for what the issue could be. 

 

Things I would start with are:

 

Form - DataSource - Should be your sharepoint list

Form - OnSuccess - ResetForm(FormName);RequestHide()

Form - DefaultMode - Edit

Form - Items (something similar to) - If(IsBlank(SharePointIntegration.Selected) || IsEmpty(SharePointIntegration.Selected),First([@SPList]),SharePointIntegration.Selected)

Thank you for that recommendation. I checked all those settings and they are already as you recommended they be.

Hi @ShawnL ,

 

In SharePoint list, if no items are seleted, then you could create a new item with PowerApps Form mode in NewForm mode like this:

Just select "+" and custom form would open with a new form.

 

Only when you select one single item, then Edit button would apprear, after selecting it, Form would be open in edit form mode:

Also, please make sure that you are using the PowerApps custom form by navigating to List settings > General settings > Form settings.

Mona;

Yes it is using the custom form, when I create a New record or Edit a old record from the Home Page where I am displaying the List it uses the New form.  However when I go under Lists and open the list and select New or a recored to Edit it does nothing.
