PowerApp form editing problem with refresh

I am new to PowerApps so any specific detail provided would be appreciated.

 

I have a basic form created using PowerApps.  If I edit an existing record using my form, hit save and then that record again the change I just made does not display.  I do, however, see that my data (using a SP list) is correct.  If I refresh my browser and then open the record I see the edit.  Also, if I wait a few minutes before I edit the form  again the new data will appear.

 

Is there a way to ensure the data has been refreshed prior to opening an edit form?

Re: PowerApp form editing problem with refresh

Hi @KCM 

 

Can you add the following expression to refresh the datasource, once your form data is submitted? This need to pe place on the icon you select to submit the record.
 
Expression: 
SubmitForm(Form1);Refresh(DataSourceName)
 
Here, DataSourceName needs to be replaced with your SP list name.
 
Hope this Helps!
