Re: Sudden appearance of red x's

@robertcarmody @CindyZ @Anonymous @syed_sme @longathrow If the App checker is not reporting any errors, the red X's should be safe to ignore.  They likely are triggered when a formula is run while the datasource is in an intermediate/invalid state and are not being cleared properly after the datasource has updated and became valid again.  Is anyone noticing functionality loss?  Or is it more of an annoyance / causing confusion?

Re: Sudden appearance of red x's


Thanks for this, in fact after going to View-> Data sources and refresh the Sharepoint connection the app worked again.

Kind regards,

Re: Sudden appearance of red x's

Hi @_Corey_ 


This issue seems to have resurfaced again. I am now getting this every time I close and re-open the app. I tried the three steps you listed earlier in this thread but continue to get the same issue. I have also tried clearing cache and opening the app on a range of different devices but continue to have the same problem. Have there been any other developments or any other steps we can try to resolve this? I'm getting 150+ of these errors and having to refresh 10+ data sources (all SP lists) each time I open the app. Without knowing the eventual impact this will have on the app in the long term we are reluctant to continue development on any apps until this is resolved so any update you could provide would go a long way to help us make a decision about how to proceed.
