Forms suddenly disconnected from data and visibility messed up

Hey guys, I have recently been working on an app for my workplace which I have spent the last 2-3 months on. I presented it yesterday and all was fine but suddenly today, all my forms are asking me to "Connect to data" and the visibility of everything is on and squished. I have no idea why this has happened, my list has not been altered in any way!


It is worth me saying that the other screens which pick up things from the same list seem to be fine, but suddenly all of my forms are messed up...


I do not want to display too much of my app but here is a screenshot of how it looks now:


Compared to how it is published and restored to:


Please feel free to ask questions, I really need this fixed!!

Hi @WilkinsLuke6 

There is an ongoing issue that is causing this problem. I've reported it and hopefully, it'll be fixed soon.

That's good to hear, hopefully they address this sooner rather than later!


For the time being, should I just leave my app and not mess around with anything?

Hi @WilkinsLuke6 

Yes, I think it's probably best to not mess around with anything for the time being.

I've been copied into some of the emails from Microsoft. There's a whole bunch of people working on this issue at the moment.

Okay that's great news, thanks for the responses!

Just an update on this. After I reported this issue, @chass cc'd me on various emails. There was a big team effort to resolve this problem quickly.

Later, @CWesener  reported the problem has been fixed in production. They are investigating the cause of the problem, with the aim of avoiding a repetition of this again in the future.

Therefore, thanks very much Chuck, Clay, and all of the Power Apps team for fixing/mitigating this problem quickly.
