Re-link Power App to Sharepoint List View

Hi all, 

 

I created an app directly from a List View in Sharepoint Online 2016. I moved that app to the correct environment (by default it creates the app in the Default environment but need it in another) and that broke the link to the SharePoint View (not the datasource).

 

I can open the app itself and use it just fine but of course, it doesn't appear in the List Views on Sharepoint. Is there a way to re-link to the List Views so it appears in the drop down?

 

(a previous post from 11/2016 mentionned this functionnality was on the roadmap, I am wondering if that has now been released)

Hi @jeang,

 

I am not quite understand the SharePoint list view you mentioned here, do you mean the PowerApps tab under the List?

If this is the issue, then you should check the Preview feature in SharePoint:

Enable or disable preview features in SharePoint

 

By default the option under the SharePoint list could only create App in Default environment, there is no way to switch environment when working with it.

 

If I haver any misunderstandings, would you please share a screenshot, which should be much helpful for me to understand the situation.

 

Regards,

Michael

Michael,

 

Yes this is the feature I am talking about. You answered one of my questions regarding the aility to create an app, using that Power Apps creation tool  from the list view, in a non-Default environment... looks like I can't pick neither the environment nor the layout (defaults to a phone layout).

 

The other question I have was: is there a way to re-link an app to that list view so it shows up in SharePoint as one of the views? As I mentionned:

  1. I created the app from the list (using what you describe below)
  2. Saved it locally to my desktop
  3. uploaded it to the environment I needed the app to be in
  4. now I am looking for a way to re-link to the view.

 

But it seems that functionality is not available yet. Oh well, I'll just embed it in a seperate page... Thanks for the help!
