Pulling information from a SharePoint list

I have a sharepoint list that I have then created a powerapp from. Based on the choices in the list flow then creates a number and inserts it into a text field on the list. I cannot get that field to show with the number in it in my powerapp. 

 

Eg: enter details into powerapp and underneath I would like the Number to then show once flow has created it. I have refreshed the data, etc with no luck. 


If I add the list in as a gallery and the data cards in a Form viewer there is only 1 card which shows the number. 

 

Any ideas ?

As your flow is triggered after the item is created, so an immediate refresh won't work is what i am guessing. 
 
As a workaround, you can set up a timer that refreshes the data source after a delay of approximate time taken to execute the flow. 
 
Makes sense? 
 
Hope this helps!

UPDATE: 

If I refesh the data source it shows the number in the gallery view but idaelly I want the number to show on the input page and not have to redirect to a gallery.

Hey @DeeDor 

 

Can you share screenshot of the flow that you mentioned in the post. I wanted to confirm what is triggering it, also are you returning some response to powerapps once the flow execution is completed.
 
Is the flow patching/ updating data to your SP list? If you provide few more details about the steps workflow, we will be able to help you better.
 
Thanks,

Hi @DeeDor ,

 

To make all fields from SharePoint list to show in the Form control, you first select the Form control > Edit fields >+Add field, then check the fields that you want to add > Add.

Did you start a flow within this app? What is the flow's configuration?

Hi @yashag2255 

The flow runs when an item is created in the list. It then updates the item based on the information entered. 

 

What I would like to do is when the detail is entered then the number created is displayed either on the same screen or even the next screen. 

 

Thanks 🙂

Thanks.. I did think I might have to use a timer for it.
