In SharePoint custom PowerApps form…Do we have any option to expire cache forcefully, so when end user loads they see an updated form? As of now, I have tell the end user to make hard refresh(CTRL+F5) which is kind of difficult if lots of the people are using it.
I think we should have some kind of switch (in the App Settings) and when it is turned ON it will forcefully expire the every users cache.
You could add a button and set its onselect property to:
This retrieves a fresh copy of the list data source. You'll see changes that other users made.
I think this applies only to Data Source. I am more into UI changes which doesn’t reflect sometimes with hard refresh.
Setting the default form mode to New fixed this for me, but it's still annoying that we have to do that. Hopefully Microsoft fixes this by default in a future update because seeing old cached data in all modes (view/edit/new) is just odd behaviour and shouldn't be an issue when dealing with online forms.
