POwerApps Build Tools in Different Places in each app

 I keep noticing that when I edit apps, often they each have a different build area.

 

For example, in one app - to get to the connections its pretty simple, the connections button is in the tan frame on far left:

Where as in another app, you have to click view:

App2.jpg

 

Is there a way to upgrade or adjust these build areas so that they're all the same? This is all coming from the same environment.

Hi @TesDA :

Is the Data Sources icon missing in some of your applications?

I suggest you try the following solutions first:

Enable the "Improve Data Source Experience and Common Data Service View" feature.

File-Settings-Advanced settings-Improve Data Source Experience and Common Data Service View.

Hi @TesDA ,

 

Republish the app where you don't see the connections in the left pane and then open in edit mode again. I have noticed this in my old apps created 6 months back but when I republish and reopen the app in edit mode I got to see on the left pane.

 

I hope this resolved your issue if you see any challenge/need further help let me know I am always happy to help.

Thank you for adding more words on my suggestion to the issue, what I have seen my old apps is this got enabled after I republish the app and for the new apps it is coming by default.
