Making changes to sharepoint list columns not updating in powerapps forms



Extremely new to PowerApps and just trying to create something simple to start with but failing! I've created a SharePoint List with a few columns in it. I've started a new PowerApp from a blank template and added a gallery and a few fields from the SharePoint List Data Source. But when going back into the SharePoint List and adding more columns, I can't get these to appear within PowerApps?


I've tried refreshing the Data Source and it says 'Refreshed', I've also tried removing the Data Source and adding again but it still won't pick up the other columns from the SharePoint List?


I'm sure I'm doing something stupid but any help would be appreciated.

Re: Making changes to sharepoint list columns not updating in powerapps forms

Hi @helicon2 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your issue?

Do you mean that the new added columns would not be displayed within your app even though you refresh your data source or re-create new connection to your SP list from your app?


Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned. When I go back to my canvas app, and click "Refresh" option of SP list or re-create a new connection to SP list, the new added columns would be shown up in my app.


You could consider add a Label control within your Gallery, then set the Text property to following:


then check if you could find the new added columns within the available fields selections as below:Test.gif


If the issue still exists, please consider re-create a new app based on your SP List data source, then check if the issue is solved.


Best regards,
