I'm working with another developer on a Power App canvas app. In hopes that we can work on the code at the same time we are using components as suggested in this article:
The steps I'm trying are
1) create canvas app, called Main
2) create component in canvas app. The component is called MessageComponent
3) save/publish Main app
4) Save As main app calling new version Branch
5) open branch and make some change to the component, say changing its background color
6) save publish Branch app
7) open Main app and import components from Branch app
What I'm expecting is that I will be given the option to replace the MessageComponent component in Main with the MessageComponent in Branch. But instead the MessageComponent in Branch gets imported into Main as MessageComponent_1. So instead of updating Main with the same named component in Branch, I get a new component. If I try deleting the original MessageComponent and then renaming MessageComponent_1 to MessageComponent, I first lose code references to MessageComponent.
I have tried doing the import components from an App online and from an export file.
The article on collaborative development says that when importing components, if an incoming component has the same name as an existing component I will be given the option to replace the existing component. But I never see that option.
Am I doing something wrong?
