Newly added SharePoint fields dont show up in PowerApps dev environment when you refresh datasource

Im editing a powerapp and then I add a new field to the sharepoint list that the form Im editing uses as its datasource. I hit refresh, slose the app and reopen, etc. and it doesnt show up.

this is a brand new field that was not rename or changed.

This is killing me right now. Any ideas?

The workaround is to add a new form to the same screen and then delete that new form. THEN the new field shows up in the existing form. Grrr.

BrianKennemer - Thanks for your post. I tried your method and believe it worked for me. However, I had to go back into the data connection and refresh.

yeah sometimes I get it to work without the refresh and sometimes I have to refresh. It is not consistant for me.
