Having major problems with Forms and Apps with data connecting. Usual SharePoint list connection and the forms were built a while back. This is happening across lots of lists within the same subsite and very confused.
With no warning or pattern, the forms lose connection to choice columns and people pickers. Log in and refresh the data which after a LOT of refreshes would sometimes reconnect. However, since Tuesday a particular form wouldn't reconnect. I decided to pull the list through to a PowerApp and see if that resolved the problem. Spent all of yesterday formatting the App to get ready to publish live today to replace the form which is broken in a live envrionment, for me to then log on this morning for the App to now display the same issue. I refreshed the data source in the App and it has now reconnected but this is not reliable. I have now checked the original form and this has now magically reconnected too.
Anybody experienced similar ? I consider myself quite Powerapp savvy and never had this problem before with any connections. However, a colleague has just emailed saying she is having similar issues with a form on a different subsite where the people picker is sporadically playing up.
This really needs to resolved ASAP as this is impacting a live system. !!!
