BUG: PowerApp SharePoint List Form not refreshing anymore

Hi PowerApps Team, I have an important problem with SharePoint PowerApps Forms.

They no longer update the values in the from of a list (see Video / see Screen).  The problem is new a few days ago everything was still fine. If I reload the complete page in the browser, the form is ok again. Smiley Sad

 

What can I do? Same on all browsers and operating systems.

Yes I see that the old fix is still effective for one thing, but there appears to be a newer problem that has developed.  I am not sure that it is a known issue though.  @Pstork1 can you site something that shows it to be a known issue before I duplicate an escalation?

 

A quick fix to the issue is to put another Refresh statement in the OnEdit action of your SharePointIntegration object.

On a default customized form that would be : Refresh(yourList); EditForm(SharePointForm1)

You might also want to put this in the OnView action of the integration as well since the view state of the form exhibits the same issue.

That cleared it up on my side.

@RandyHayes Thanks for your super fast message Cat Very Happy. I tried it right away. Unfortunately it didn't bring any improvement. Do you have any other idea what I could do? All lists in the site collection are affected no matter what I do.

MS is aware of this and is looking into it.  Try one more thing that they say works in the meantime.  access a different item and then go back to the original.  At that point the original will update.  It seems to be a problem with the form caching values.

@RandyHayes Good work! OnEdit action: Refresh(yourList); EditForm(SharePointForm1)

load now the form in 99% correct.

 

My SharePoint Integration had no refresh by default. Should that be the case? Maybe there is a problem? the microsoft builder has missed this step?

 

The applications were all created yesterday.

*Normally* the SharePointIntegration does not need to be refreshed like that - thus it would not be in the designer by default.  However, there has been an issue for a while now that first surfaced with the forum positing that I linked for you in the first reply.  That was unusual to have to add that refresh.  But, not it seems worse that you even have to refresh when the form is brought up for any action (OnEdit, OnView, etc).  That is something that should be resolved in the SharePointIntegration and not something that you have to add.

@RandyHayes Thanks again for the quick support. We have these forms in production. If the wrong values are displayed here we would have big problems

Yep...it's a big problem.  That's why I'd like to get confirmation from @Pstork1 that this particular one is a referenced known issue.

It's good we have a workaround, but not everyone is going to read this posting.
