SharepointIntegration List Name in Power App

Ok, so I am back to building custom forms for the New, Edit , View of a list. 

I just wanted to ask this for Verification and to help others is they see this too.

 

I crated the list with the name SAAP_Test1  but soon wanted to ensure I could change the name

if what I was testing would work  to the 'Safety Activity Action Plan Modern'.  So my customer would be happy with the name.    Which I did on the LIST view Screen

in SharePoint (modern) it was easy, I clicked on the Name, and changed it. 
Even in the LIST Properties I see that name, and nowhere do I see the OLD NAME. SAAP_Test1

EXCEPT> in the SHAREPOINT INTEGRATION FORMS that I use to EDIT, VIEW, Display the row.

 

Is the name on the screen now an ALIAS?  As I don't want be confused later.

When I created the forms, the old name was still being used,

but after I changed it, and go back into CUSTOMIZE them,

it has the old name and does work!  (From list hit NEW, Click Customize Form, then it opens in Power Apps)

 I am ok with this working, in fact I like the idea of being able to change the Screen Name of a list and it does not actually change the created name, but wanted to ensure I was not crazy.

One tip from your comments - People fields are not necessarily good when you can do the same query in Power Apps in the Office365Users connector and store the result in Text (this blog of mine on data structure may interest you).

Hi @Warisme ,

You are indeed not crazy. SharePoint remembers the original list name (it does the same with field names) and you will find places where you need to reference it by this. Depending on the data in there at the moment, you might consider making a new list with the name you want and copying it over.

I did realize a few things as a Tip for those doing this work.  1st the Type PEOPLE is a great way to pull in the ActiveDirectory information (field type).  2nd  Once you have worked on a list and changed alot of stuff around, you are better off (before deployment) to Create a new list from scratch with no changes to then start working in Power apps!  

 

I have a new list, and I still can't use the Search like I want, but using FILTERS with and's and Or's can get you what you need (&& , ||)

 

3rd time was a charm.
