Text fields connected to SharePoint not being updated in app



I have a weird issue. Maybe it is related to the size of the app (has around 40 screens, lots of rules). Maybe this is related to the fact, that the main data source are SharePoint lists. Anyway, I am seeing an issue with refreshing data. For example I have a form that updates record in a single list. User types new information, saves, then the record is actually being updated on the SharePoint side, however even when using "Refresh(list_name" function and even manually refreshing the datasource, values used by the app are still the previous ones. Not on that edit form screen, but everywhere else.


The information on what to show inside the edit form is steered by a combo box, that allows to pick a specific record. Then user can open an edit form for that record. When I change the record to be updated and then change it back to the one, that has actually been updated, values are refreshed.


To me it seems like some sort of a cache on the fields level, rather than datasource. Has anyone had a similar issue? Does anyone has a solution to that?

Re: Text fields connected to SharePoint not being updated in app

Hi @TPoszytek,


Did you mean that you cannot find the newly updated records inside a combo box control? May I know how did you make SharePoint list items show inside a combo box control? You might share the formulas related here. Also, how many records do you have in this list? Is there any non-delegatable warning in your formulas?

Re: Text fields connected to SharePoint not being updated in app


No, the combo box just shows records from a Companies list. Then once user chooses a specific company is able to click the button, to open a second screen with the Edit form.

Then user updates data, saves. Form is submitted, data IS updated in SharePoint, data source is refreshed in application, but when user goes to edit form for that company again, or opens another form where the company data is displayed in a view format, then the displayed data is still the one, before the update. Data in app does not refresh.

Any ideas?

Thank you.
