Cannot add SharePoint List

I created a PowerApp from our corporate cloud based SharePoint List. I need to add a second list for a drop down box. I tried the tutorial on how to add another another data source. 


1. Add Data Source

2. Clicked on our Corporate Cloud-based Sharepoint Site

3. Entered in corporate sute Https://

4. Enter Custome List appears

5. Tried entering, List Name, List Link, and 100s of other variations and when clicking on connect gives me "There was a problem adding your data source"


Not sure what to do at this point. This was data i ported over from our Web Access App that Microsft has graciously decided to end.

For me I type in: "" (without quotes of course) and then it gives me checkboxes to select a list to connect to.

Re: Cannot add SharePoint List

As I never trust my typing, I open the page in SharePoint where I find my lists nd copy the url!!
I don't see why Powerapps can't remember it!

Re: Cannot add SharePoint List

Hi @skburke,

Another thing to note is that PowerApps is looking for the URL of the site where your SharePoint list is located, rather than the URL of the list itself... After you enter the site URL, then you should see any custom lists on that site.
