First Power App

I am trying to create my very first power app it is for a SharePoint site.  I want the flow to trigger when an item is added to a list.  (The list was made from a contact list.)  So I went into "Create Flow."  I choose the correct site address.   When I click on "List Name," it is empty.  Why?  I would have thought that it would populate automatically.  What am I supposed to do?

Power Apps doesn't provide support for all lists.  It is designed primarily for Custom Lists in Modern sites.  So it doesn't go looking for Legacy lists like the Contact list.  You should still be able to attach to the list by scrolling to the bottom of the lists in the connection dialog and entering the name of the list by hand as a custom entry.

I forgot to reply to your message the other day.  Yes, this was very helpful.  Since I am learning, I exported the contact list and then recreated it as a list.  This works out fine.
