Issue in PowerApps phone app using Shuffle in book a room template

Hi All,


It seems like there is a bug in the newer PowerApps app version for Android (think the same happens on IOS), which didn't happen before and suddenly causes an issue in our app. I was wondering if somebody encountered this issue or can verify what we are seeing. It can be easily reproduced:


- Fresh rollout of the book a room template

- In the room gallery we only added this formula : Shuffle(AvailableRoomEmailName) (instead of only AvailableRoomEmailName)


Now the available rooms are displayed in random order (we need this to prevent double bookings made at the same time by users).


This works perfectly in PowerApps Web.

In the phone app when you click on the book button the wrong room is selected (you can see it suddenly changes). It also fails to book the room because of this.

This didn't happen in older versions of the PowerApps app for Android, it looks like something changed and a re-shuffle is done when a user clicks the button in the gallery.


Thanks very much!
