How to force browser refresh using PowerApps?

Hi Everyone,


I using a PowerApp to submit data to Sharepoint List uisng SubmitForm(FormName).

FormName is bound to SharePoint List (mySPList).

I navigate to another screen ViewMyData screen wherein I am displaying the submitted data uisng gallery.

I can view submiited data uisng next arrow in gallery.


However, whereever I try to submit a new form uisng the HomeScreen (I am uisng NewForm(FormName)) at OnVisible of HomeScreen but it retains the value of last submitted record until I manually refresh the browser. Refresh(FormName) or Refresh(mySPList) at SubmitForm(FormName) did not clear the browser cache thus did not resolve the issue.


Is there any way to  force browser refresh (clear cache) using PowerApps once the form is submitted?

I have sometimes found certain action do not trigger onvisible.  This may be one.  Have you tried to the action in the same code line as you use to navigate to the new form - NewForm(FormName)); Navigate(nextscreen,''')

I'm not sure if you can do that directly, however you could have it use Launch to refresh the page by navigating back to it.
