Power Apps Monitor Feedback discussion thread

We recently launched the new Power Apps Monitor tool to help you debug and improve the performance of your apps. You can read more about the Monitor in the blog post. As you use the Monitor, we'd love to hear your feedback. What did you find helpful? What additional features could we add to this tool to help you debug your apps better? This community post will be used to consolidate all feedback on the Monitor tool. You can also access this post directly from the "Provide Feedback" link in the Monitor.

Hi @AengusHeaney ,


Thanks for your work.

So far, my initial impression is Wow! Love the fact that I can see what's happening with the app as I use it and even get the formula that was run to help with debugging. Wonderful work. More feedback to come as I get more into the monitoring tool.

Very cool tool indeed! One thing I noticed is that I can't scroll down the Properties pane...



Browser: Firefox 70.0.1 (64-bit)
OS: Ubuntu 18.04

We will take a look and see what is going on here.

While we work on fixing the scrolling issue, another option is to highlight a row and then use the arrow keys to view the additional rows returned, or you can toggle to the JSON view to see the response also.

So I tried Monitor because I need it badly to see why is my app so slow, but I have a "No Rows To Show" message. The monitor is connected and Items = 0. I tried Chrome and Firefox. Any Ideas what could be the issue?

Have you tried clicking around in the app? App Monitor will only show you results if you are clicking around in the app while you have it open in canvas studio.

Yes I have tried clicking around in the app, with Alt key as well as with F5 key, nothing was there, now it is working don't ask me why, I did the same thing both times. This is going to be wonderful ...
Thank you

Hi @AengusHeaney,

The Monitor is really helping me on a daily basis while I create my applications, and even more now that the Trace() function's traces can be viewed in the Monitor as well.

I have noticed one thing though: if you your Power Apps session expires the monitor will show this message:

The message is relevant right after the session has expired, but after re-authenticating in the Power Apps Studio tab, reopening Monitor through the Studio would still show the message... Strange! The only workaround I've found so far is to totally close the Power Apps Studio tab and reopen my app for modifications and then open the Monitor.

I also had a suggestion to make: since most of the traces that occur in the Monitor are triggered/associated to a control in the application, it would be nice to have column showing the name of the control.
