Choosing new datasource for custom edit form

I've created a custom edit form in powerapps and I am using a test sharepoint list for my custom form. It works perfectly, now I want to change data sources for the form without deleting my datacards and arrangement of my form -- is there any way to do this easily?

Re: Choosing new datasource for custom edit form

Hi

If the data structure of you new source is the same, so same filed names and types, you should just be able to remove you existing data source and then add the new one.

If the source name is difernet  (data structure still been the same) change it on the 'items' property of your gallery and you should see your data appear from the new source

 

Do this all the time when swicthing form development to acceptance and production APPs
