@v-xida-msft, @Anonymous, is there still a maximum # of Lookup columns that one can have in a Sharepoint list that PowerApps ties to? If so, this is something to keep an eye on as you build your data relationships.

The scenario is:

I have 3 List

  1. User List
  2. Equipment List
  3. Assignement List

The users can be assigned to equipment.  Only active users can be assigned to available equipment.  The assignment list must be able to pull all active users from the user list and pull all avaialbe equipment from the equipment list.
