Making changes to sharepoint list columns not updating in powerapps forms



I have a SharePoint list for which the form was cutomized using PowerApps. After creating the form, I made some columns mandatory and updated their names. These changs aren't reflecting in my form. I have tried refreshing the data but the column stayed as is and the star does show up.


There are only 2 ways, not very efficient that I figured out:

- Unlocking the Data Card and make the changes.

- In the field list, change the data card view, e.g. from Edit number to %













With either of the 2 approaches, I have to readjust the font size etc. Is there any easier way of achiving the same?


Thank you.

Thank you so much for the solution.

Took a couple of repetitions of the process to pull all the column setting updates (in my case was adjusting the minimum and maximum allowed values on a number field). Got it working in the end and the solution was much appreciated and I would have never thought of it!

I have just encountered this issue myself, but the fix is now a slight variation on the above, if you refresh the data first then go to your fields list and click on "add field" it will show the edited column as if it was a new one just select it to add to the app and then remove the old version. Can now all be done without having to save and reload etc
