SharePoint and PowerApps Date tip

Hoping to help some others users out there...


Added a SharePoint DATE ONLY field to SharePoint, but PowerApps adds date and time components to the form ?


If you create a SharePoint column date ONLY column using the new interface (Not classic), even though SharePoint indicates there is NOT a time component in the SharePoint field, that appears misleading.  PowerApps will add date and time to your form.

After 20 minutes of tinkering , I decided create a data only column in SharePoint using the classic interface, and set it as DATE ONLY, and only then , would  Powerapps canvas show date only.  If this has been posted and already a known issue, apologies, I did not find it.
