Enforce App-list Refresh?



When I publish an updated version of an app, I currently need to rely on users to manually hit the refresh icon within PowerApps to ensure they get the latest version of an app. I have found that in some cases (where they do not manually refresh) users continue to use the old version for some time. 



Therefore my questions:

1. Where can a user set how often their app list refreshes/synchronizes?

2. Is there a way to enforce a refresh? 

3. What is the best way to ensure everyone gets the latest app version, without having to rely on users to manually refresh?


Thanks in advance.

Any update on this?


I did find a way that seems to work - yet not overly practical - that is to un-share and re-share the app.

This way, users will definately get the new version next time they open PowerApps. If you have shared it with a large number of individuals though, rather than a group, then this is a lengthy exercise.
