Stop PowerApps from Importing All SharePoint Columns

I am making a new PowerApp with multiple forms. I want each form to include different fields from my 200 column SharePoint list. When I add a new form and select the SharePoint list as my source, it automatically creates 200 new fields and I have to manually delete all of them individually which takes forever. Is there anyway to prevent PowerApps from automatically adding all of the list items into the form and rather just go choose the ones I want?

Yes, that IS super annoying... I don't have a fix but I have a workaround.

 

Connect the form to a random SharePoint list with fewer columns.  Then change the datasource.  When this menu pops up click: 'No Thanks'.  Then you can delete all datacards from the random SP list and populate with your own 🙂
