Form cleans up ALL my inputs at submitting since last week

Please someone, please help.
My form was working fine until 2 weeks ago, but all of a sudden this started happening.

 

What is happening:
I created Form on PA Canvas from scratch, then set as following,

  • Form1.DataSource = <Sharepoint List Name>
  • Form1.Item = Defaults(<Sharepoint List Name>)
  • Set Submit button & OnSelect = SubmitForm(Form1)


Very simple & typical yes?
When this started bothering me, all the data I input in each control are gone, flushed to blank after a second when I click a button of SubmitForm. Then in Sharepoint, all columns of the record are blank.

Another app of mine does not submit either. This has a button to Navigate to next screen, but the behavior is the same; All go blank when clicking a button.

I tested with a brand new Sharepoint List with just a Title column and a new Powerapps Canvas App. It doesn't work.
When I create a form App from Sharepoint, It's working. (This feature does not have iPad/Tablet size but just iPhone, so I cannot use it at the end.)

All I can think of at this moment is (A) Did I do/ Am I doing anything wrong (B) Office updated anything like blocking users like me from creating form apps from a blank canvas?

Since I cannot stop my client's business with my mysterious tech issue, so I hooked a collection to hand the input data, then connect it to each form control's default values. But I don't want to keep doing this since this was working intact weeks ago. Any helps are welcomed and appreciatedCat Sad. Thank you.

Hi thank you for reply. I think I reached to a self-solution. This issue seems to occur when I Navigate away to another screen. So I put all form process (such as confirmation) to one Screen, and "virtually navigate" by switching visibility. Now everything looks working & the data is populated to SP perfectly. (Besides this actually became faster than multi-Screened version!) Hopefully can be a reference to anybody suffering from the same issue.

Wow it seems like working back (or fixed?) with a new Powerapps App & a new Sharepoint.

Still not working with my list yet though.

What I did today before testing is only cleaned up my Apps list by deleting some of test apps. That's all difference I think.

Are they working on a fix? I hope it works without any pause because my client use my apps everyday, all day.
