PowerApp Disappeared

I created a PowerApp yesterday, put my computer to sleep, and today when I refreshed the page and signed back in, the PowerApp has disappeared.  The flow that I created alongside it is still there, proving that I am not crazy...any idea where the PowerApp itself went?

Is there any auditing available to check if someone accidentally deleted it, etc?

Ouch, sorry to hear you lost your work. To avoid this happening in future, you might want to consider turning on the 'Auto Save' feature. You can find this under File > Account.

Re: PowerApp Disappeared

Hi @Calum,

If you accidentaly deleted an app you might need to log a support request from PA Team.

Youu will need to know the following information about the app:

tenant id, app name and the app ID (of the deleted app).

I dont think there's currently an out-of-the-box way to audit deleted apps.

Are you sure you hit Save to Save the App?  When you create an App it stays cached in the browser until you actually save and Publish it.  Unlike Flow you don't have to save it to Run it.  You can run it in Preview without saving it.  I know I lost one or two when I started by hitting the Back button on the browser at the wrong time.

Re: PowerApp Disappeared

I suspect this was the problem...I don't think I saved it, I just left it open because I was half way through working on it...didn't expect my session to be timed out and then lose all progress though!

Lesson learnt for next time I guess.

Re: PowerApp Disappeared

Hi @Calum ,

I'm afraid the app can't be found since you didn't save it.

To avoid this, I suggest you turn on these two functions:

1) auto save

File->account6273_LI.jpg

2) Set the App

ConfirmExit: true

ConfirmExitMessage: "Don't forget to save your app!"

6274_LI.jpg

 

 

Please notice that don't forget to save your app again.
