Powerapp Flow item list is overflowing and first few lines not visible

I have added a flow in my PowerApps. The flow is expecting a lot of input data from the App. When I am trying to put the expected values inside the run command of the flow - the expected name of the values in the flow that is shown automatically above by PowerApps are overflowing and I cannot see the first few lines.

 

Please see the example below:

Please see the red marked area. When I use the scroll bar on the right side of it, it only allows me to scroll down, but scrolling up does not help in viewing the first few lines.

Re: Powerapp Flow item list is overflowing and first few lines not visible

Hi @RaihanShafique ,

If your prompt message is too much to display , you will meet this problem indeed.

I suggest you modify your formula to a few steps. Then the prompt message will be less.

About your advice on showing all the prompt message,

I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum. Your precious feedback will be very helpful for our work.

Re: Powerapp Flow item list is overflowing and first few lines not visible

My advice would be to look at why you need that many arguments.  It looks to me like you have one for every box on your screen  which is basically set like a table. 

 

If that is correct I would just create a table or gallery based on a collection that suits your list.  I would have one set of boxes to match on the top with an add button.  Each time you add it puts the result in a collection.

 

At the end of that you may not need a flow,  but a simple forall() that patches the collection to whereever it needs to go

Well, I need to use flow as I use the flow to take approvals as well as to write the resulting approval status and comments along with these details in the database. 

 

I raised this issue to show the design flaw, MS needs to address this issue of the visibility.

Re: Powerapp Flow item list is overflowing and first few lines not visible

Thank you for your feedback. This worked.

I reduced number of items in the flow, then the items list was visible entirely. Then I kept a screenshot of it to remember what were the items in the top lines.

Then I added all the items back in my flow and finally was able to pass all required fields.
