PowerApps not saving, properties not loading

I was working on my PowerApps form yesterday and this morning, until it decided to stop working. I was working on Google Chrome on my Mac.


The problem occurred after I made a few changes on my SharePoint list data source. A couple of topics suggested removal and re-add of data source. However, the below message appears when I try to do so.


My session ID is 9636f9e8-6b31-475e-b318-af4856c01790.





Problem 1: When I select a control, their properties are not loading on both the Properties and Advanced windows (on the right), and the formula bar (at the top).

Problem 2: When I try saving PowerApps, the screen will say "Saving..." but will not progress from there. I waited for about 30 minutes on Google Chrome, and then tried to do the same action from Microsoft Edge with no luck.


I have read a couple of forum topics here suggesting trying to save via Microsoft Edge before returning to Google Chrome. The same problems above existed when I opened the app on Microsoft Edge.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your response @v-xida-msft 


I've tried restoring previous version. The previous version that works starts from 3 versions away, which would require quite a significant effort to restore the code gap to current version, especially that I can't see the codes on the current version as selecting these properties on the current version shows a blank field (e.g. OnSelect properties).


Do you have any suggestion on how I can access the code from previous version if I have to continue with this process?


Also, any idea on what could have triggered this bug? So I can avoid re-introducing the bug as I go through my code update. The only thing that comes to mind before the bug comes, was that I was updating my data source (SharePoint list) and the PowerApps. I'm not sure why this would have affected 3 versions though.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Have you taken a try to refresh the SP List data source manually within your app after you made some changes to your SP List?


Currently, I could not reproduce your issue on my side. Please consider capture the Session ID of your app, then submit an assisted support ticket along with the captured Session ID through the following link:

I sure have, and it will stay on "Refreshing" and not progress. I had this open for 2 hours without any luck.


What I've also found is that, while trying to incorporate most recent code into the restored version, if I copy all my old code that contains references to old SharePoint list structure, the app runs into the same exact problem. But if I copy line by line and manually rewrites the lines to reflect updated SharePoint list structure, the app won't crash.
