Error Message "The Data source Supplied to the function is invalid"



We have noticed that Powerapps on IPAD displays the following error message when the User goes from Offline mode to Online mode. This error message only appears briefly for some time and the rest of the functionality works fine as expected.


Did any one has come across this error message as this is a little annoying and confusing to the user.


I am using the latest version of Powerapps and the Datasource is Sharepoint.

Hi @macrag,


What is your session id? Did you build your app using the method here? Is this happening to all the offline apps you built?

I am getting this error as soon as i open the apps home scrren which has just a logo and a button and no code exists to access the datasource. But it looks like some how it is trying to connect to the Sharepoint datasource from other screens


I can also confirm that I have already checking for the connection status before connecting to sharepoint, so i am puzzled to see why i see this error message.


here is session id


My session id is 9ad63201-5577-f2a2-00f3-b2f9393fbccc



I have a problem with my connection


I have a data source on common data service, and it works fine working online, but when i start the app being on airplane mode,  and then go to airplane mode off, it is not able to find the datasource connection and i get this erros:
