App shared with 'Everyone in XX' not behaving properly

I've got a form built in Powerapps that is posting and pulling data from a Sharepoint list.  Because of the business purpose for this form, I've given everyone in my organization Contribute access to the Sharepoint list.  I've got a few drop-down menus that are populating with choices from this SP list.

Here is my problem.  I shared this Powerapp with 'Everyone in...' my organization.  I made this group a type 'User'.  When users access this app, there are no values in the drop-down menus.  HOWEVER, when I share the app with a specific user, giving them the same 'User' access, the dropdown populates properly.  Is this a bug in PA?  I'd prefer not having to add and manage every single user in my org to the share list.  Please help!

I was able to resolve this issue.  For reasons unknown, the data connection I was using for the app reverted back to my personal one instead of a generic app account.  Once I switched it back, everything started working like it should.

Not sure if this is a bug

 

but I believe you should be sharing app with "Everyone" group

Did u try thi?

@RezaDorrani, would this expose the form to anyone who might accidentally get the URL, whether they're in my org or not?  Thanks!

When you pick everyone - it does state everyone within your org only

I apologize for the confusion...that's actually what it is set for.  'Everyone in XXXX'

 

Update: I've tried to update my original post to correct the error in description
