Shoutouts: Error Creating App from Template

I've been trying to use Shoutouts for a while. Initially there appeard to be errors in the template that were resolved, so I started over. Once I created and customized my own version of the app, it appeard to be working but it wasn't. I figured that was something I broke, so I decided to start over again. Unfortunately, now, when I try to create my app from the template, I get an error and can't move forward. Any guidance would be appreciated. TIA!




Not applicable

Unfortunately not.


I did find a workaround by trying to manually connect the App to a database I created for an earlier version of Shoutouts and now I have a bug that erases all my records when you save a new one. Not sure how to fix that either. 

Hi @v-monli-msft 


Has there been any progress with this error? I've just tried to create the shoutouts app from the template and have got exactly the same error. Until it's fixed the template is useless!


This is PowerApps version 3.19045.16 via Google Chrome, and it happens with the Phone and Tablet layout.

You have to Save it, Close it and then reopen it. It downloads some files to your OneDrive and until you do that process it won't work.

When (IF*) you get it to work, then a bigger problem comes and then the PowerApp is completely useless.
