[Model driven]Show related table entry outside of the related menu in a form

Hi,

What I want to do sounds like something that should be very simple but I can't figure it out. I simply want to show the "EquipmentParts" table as its own tab next to General instead of user having to click Related > EquipmentParts.

I followed the docs but for whatever reason the relationship filter in the classic view never shows anything. Obviously there is a relationship, I even tried creating a additional one from the classic view, but nothing ever shows up.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but after working with powerapps for a couple of weeks I honestly feel the UI/UX is one of the worst in the world. Very few things are designed in a intuitive manner and a lot of things simply don't work or only work if you do them in a way that is near impossible to figure out on your own.

The MDA UX is wonderful, but does have a learning curve (especially for brand new users). Sorry for the frustrations.

I am not 100% sure, but your post seems to imply that you realize you need to add your own Tab, Section, and Subgrid to display the child records in their own "tab" besides General (but not as the list of Related records).

 

If I am reading it correctly, I think you are simply using the "All Records" instead of "Related Records Only" option on a subgrid. MSFT decided to make this the default in the new editor, and should probably be the "Related Records Only" option instead. Once this is selected, you'll see your relationships to set the records shown in the subgrid (and then configure as needed).

Thank you.

It is that simple. I do not know why I couldn't make that work.
