Expiring Cache in PowerApps custom form

 

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.

Hi @RaviChandra,

 

You could add a button and set its onselect property to:

Refresh(ListName)

This retrieves a fresh copy of the list data source. You'll see changes that other users made.

Thank Mona,

 

I think this applies only to Data Source. I am more into UI changes which doesn’t reflect sometimes with hard refresh.

 

Thanks!

You might try changing the default form to be "New" rather than "View". Upon submit of a custom form, the form is reset unless your default is "View".

Re: Expiring Cache in PowerApps custom form

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.
