Deep linking to item

I created an app with deep linking to a specific item and screen. The database is in SharePoint. When an item is created an email is sent out to a specific person with a link to the item and proper screen. 
It works great when I test it but when I have someone else test it the screen they receive states 
"Getting your data" and stays stuck on that screen. 

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening? 


Hi @max81,
Yes, users have all the permissions. 
Could it be because my if formula has to many conditions? 

No, if-fiction is not limited. 
sorry. I’ve no other ideas. 

maybe you could give owner rights to one user and see if he/she get in error message when using the app in editor mode. 

Found my issue. 
My formula was correct. 
I changed the datasource on both forms. 
Because it's a stand alone app with the datasource in SharePoint. Instead of [@SharePointSite] in the datasource section of the form, I changed it to SharePointSite and this seems to have fixed the issue. 
Thank you to all who attempted to help. 🙂

Hi @Lisea123,


I am facing challenges to add deep linking in to my app. I have multiple screens and want to send the deep links from the email.


How can I do that? I would be glad if you share your ideas..




I've watched videos from Shane Young and April Dunnam.



Hope these help.
