Power Apps shows buttons to everyone before disappearing them

Hello all,

I have a small query. I have a few buttons on the very first screen of my app that is not visible to everyone. I changed the visible property so that only designated users are allowed to see those buttons.
However, when any user runs the app, all of the buttons that are hidden from the users, appear for 1-2 before disappearing again. How to overcome this issue that users don't see those buttons when the app launched?

Best Regards,

Hi mate, 


Try unticking this box:


Its in the settings for your PowerApp. Move your checking functions to the OnStart functionality in your app and give that a shot 🙂

Hi @trance_addict14 ,

Could you please share more details about the formula you typed within the Visible property of the Button?

Do you initialize formula within the OnStart property of App for controlling the visible of these buttons?


As first solution, I agree with @JacobShand 's thought almost. Please consider turn off the "Use non-blocking OnStart rule" option within Advanced settings of App settings of your app, then re-publish your canvas app again, check if the issue is solved.


As another solution, you could consider move these initialization formula (for controlling Button visible) from the OnStart property of App to OnVisible property of your first screen, then re-published your app, check if the issue is fixed.
