Form gets cleared when navigating between screens

I have an app with several screens, each with a form with multiple fields. When clicking to navigate to the next screen, the form fields are all cleared, and then the navigation occurs. If the user clicks back to view that form, the fields are all empty.

 

Note, this only happens the first time. If the user fills in the form again, and then clicks to navigate to the next screen again, the fields retain their values.

 

Some fields are using dynamic visibility, and some are using a variable to determine whether or not they are required.

 

This does not happen while in preview mode, and only happens while viewing the published version of the app.

Re: Form gets cleared when navigating between screens

This is apparently a bug with the "Use Delayed Load" feature. After turning off "Use Delayed Load", the form-clearing issue doesn't happen.

Re: Form gets cleared when navigating between screens

(Bump) Any thoughts on this? Am I missing some key concept/detail? The fact that the form clears on navigate seems like a pretty big issue. As I documented here, this issue is reproducable using the app built by the Wizard when connecting to a SharePoint list, so it doesn't seem to have anything to do with any logic I've added to the form.

 

Certainly, navigating to another screen and not losing data that the user has entered is a supported scenario?

 

edit: this only happens when a record is specified in the "item" property of the form. So the form is set to have a default mode of "new", which should ignore the item property. But navigating away from the screen clears the controls if the item property has a value, but does not clear the controls if the item property does not have a value.
