Limitations in Exporting a PowerApp?

Hey People,

 

has anyone else noticed limitations in the PowerApp Export package (preview) functionality?

I've got an app with a tabbed layout (multiple Edit Forms) and only the first form is included in the export.

 

I did find a work-around:  while editing the app, press F12 to save and download just the app (not the full package, just the .msapp), then manually put the .msapp file inside the ZIP package, replacing the one that's already there.

 

Is this the best forum to raise issues like this?

 

Thanks

Craig

Hi @Craig_Humphrey 

I think the export feature exports only the most recently published version of an app.

If your app with multiple forms hasn't been published, this might explain why the extra forms aren't included in the export.

Yup you're right.

 

I was just messing around with it in a dev environment, so not bothering to publish particularly frequently, before copying (export/import) to the prod environment.

 

Thanks!
