OnStart not visible when First Screen is Deleted

Is there a way to view OnStart anywhere after the first screen of the app is deleted?

I created app, in the first screen (Screen1) onStart is visible and I added different tasks when application is onStart. The result of onStart is visible into Screen2 as well.

When Screen1 is deleted, OnStart property is not visible in Screen2 however, the result coming from onStart is reflected into Screen2. Where can i see  OnStart now to view/change what it does?

Hi @pNabin@RusselThomas,

 

I just noticed that in the offical documentation, there is alreay explaination about this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-screen

"

  • The OnStart property is actually a property of the app, not the screen. For editing convenience, you view and modify it as a property on the first screen of your app. If you remove the first screen or reorder screens, this property may become hard to find. In this case, save, close, and reload your app, and the property will reappear as a property of the first screen.

Looks like a bug to me - can't see any way to reference it - it's clearly still there somewhere, but the interface doesn't cater for the OnStart property in anything but the original first screen.

Actually this has been updated, 

The OnStart Property is now Application level and is not available anymore in the mainScreen. Instead is a property of the App item.
