Apps-OnStart is missing in Powerapps


i have just created 2 apps in two different tenants.  After the creating on both tenants i see that the Apps-Onstart is missing, so it is not possible to set initial values in OnStart. 




Any idea what is happening, and how to get access to the OnStart ?

@TrulsB I was having the same issue, in Chrome - @timl solved it by providing me this link to an older version of the designer:

Hi @TrulsB ,

Yours seems to be a different language, but mine shows this

I switched from Edge to Chrome, and then, "OnStart" is back. I dont understand anything :-). 


Well, everything is ok no.

Thanks @DaveConnors 

@TrulsB - Just like @DaveConnors , I also saw the same problem in Chrome.

@WarrenBelz doesn't see this issue, so I guess this could be region specific (I'm based in the UK)


Just as a reference for anyone else reading this, here's a link to the other post.



Thanks @timl ,

I am in Australia, so it must be regionally based.


I am getting it now doing a new SharePoint Integrated app - still shows OK on existing apps. Shifted code to Screen OnVisible for now

@timl ,

It is back now - MS must have done a quick patch

@timl ,  @DaveConnors , @TrulsB ,

Hmmmm - even more interesting - not present when app is first made. Save and come back in and it appears . . .

Thanks for the update @WarrenBelz. I reported this problem yesterday and I spoke to a support engineer (which I thought was impressive, given it was a Saturday). Hopefully, they'll fix this problem properly soon now that they're aware of it.
