Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

I am having the same issue with my SharePoint list. Will this be fixed, so that we do not have to recreate the app with a new data source? Or is deleting the data source and adding it back in the only solution?

 

Thanks,

Amy Jo

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Deleting the data source from within the app does fix the issue, not ideal but it is easy than re-creating the app.

Yes, we are working on a fix for this. It will be released in the next build in about 2 weeks time.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Hello @sarafankit,

 

This is still not working for me - any updates on the fix?

 

Also - how do you remove a data source? I have 8 sharepoint lists feeding my app, only one of them (at the moment) needs to be deleted and added as per the workaround above.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Hey Max1,

 

The issue was fixed in earlier releases, it should be working. Can you please describe what is happening with your app?

 

To remove a data source:

  • Select any screen
  • Click on Data tab on the right hand panel
  • Find the data source you want to remove and click the ... 
  • Click Remove
  • Once you add the same data source back and all your existing formulas will auto-bind 

I will also suggest, trying to hit the Refresh option in ... menu and see if the columns get updated.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Hi Sarafankit,

 

I have added some new colums to lists within sharepoint but these are not showing up in app. I have tried refreshing the data source.

 

Thank you for the steps on removing data sources - I will try removing and re-adding if we can't find another solution.

 

Thanks,

 

Max

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

I had the same problem. But in an act of desperation, I just kept refreshing relentlessly and it worked. lol

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

I am also facing this issue. I am new to PowerApps as well and was hoping that refreshing the data source would update the new columns I added to my SharePoint list. I also tried to remove and put in the data source but this did not help.

 

I read on another fourm that you could manually add in the new columns in PowerApps, however I don't think that manually creating the new columns in PowerApps would be a fix because if I made a lot of changes I would have to add this everywhere. 

 

 

Hope this gets addressed since it is a bit misleading, but I am impressed that I can create apps from a list quickly.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Refreshing the SharePoint data source should make your new columns available. Sometimes you have refresh a couple of times or wait a few minutes before refreshing but I have always been able to get my new columns to show up.

Re: SharePoint list connection no refreshing

Hi 

 

Thaks for your quick reply

 

I have done several refreshes of the data source and waited at least 30 minutes. I still do not see the new column in PowerApps.

 

I created the new column in SharePoint Designer and do see it in SharePoint Online. I also made sure that it is visable and it also shows up when I want to create a new item from SharePoint Online. Its just weird that after several refreshes it is not appearing at all in PowerApps.
