Sharepoint how do I refresh the list after saving?

I have a list and a powerapps form connected to it.

When I hit Save, it saves the data into the list on the server, but after that I have to hit cancel to close the form, and manually refresh the screen to get my changes to show up.


How do I

1) Ideally, I'd like save to also close the screen.

2) How do I get the data on the sharepoint list to refresh on the screen.

It looks like a borked the OnSuccess event somehow, once I fixed it it started working again.

Hi @ralphtrickey,


Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Could you please share screenshot of your app's configuration?

Further, do you custom a SP list form using PowerApps on your side?


I have made a test on my side (custom a SP list form using PowerApps) and don't have the issue that you mentioned. The screenshot as below:Test1.gif



You could consider take a try to custom a SP list form using PowerApps on your side, when you click the "Save" button, the SP list would be refreshed automatically.


More details about custom a SP list form using PowerApps, please check the following article:

These are the settings.




I created a list, then created a PowerApps form to go with it.


I have this in the onVisible event of the screen. I have Onvisible set to isAdmin i on a couple of fields.

Set(isAdmin, CountIf(Finance, Person.DisplayName = User().FullName) = 1
Or VpPrimary.Selected.DisplayName = User().FullName
Or VpSecondary.Selected.DisplayName = User().FullName


When I hit save, nothing changes, the form stays open.


I do have an approval workflow set up, would that keep the new values from showing.


Any ideas on why the form doesn't close when I hit save?





Removing the workflow made no difference.

What did you change in OnSuccess ?


Sorry, I'm pretty sure I deleted it and started over. I'm not sure what I specifically got wrong.

Hi @RomanKorchak


You should also check the OnFailure event as well in case something went wrong with the save.  Even a simple Notify("Save Failed") would at least let you know if the Save had failed.





Hi. Could you elaborate a bit more on this for me? OnSuccess! Please and Thank you 😄
