Variable persistence when I navigate screen

I have a powerapp where user enters various numbers on a few screens and then in the end screen the user can view all entries and upload to sharepoint.

It was working alright until end of last year.

Now, when I navigate forward from 1st screen to the 2nd screen - all values are gone before the move - don't know why.

When I navigate back, I see values are gone

But at this point, if user enters the value - they persist when I navigate forward.

My navigate forward button first SET(var,value) and then navigate forward.

Can you pls help with this weird behavior?

Hi @happyuce ,

What is the screen navigation command between screens?

Screen 1 to 2 -> 

Set(
    v1,
    varNum
);
Navigate(
[@S2],
ScreenTransition.Fade
)

Screen 2 to 1 ->

Navigate(
    [@S1],
    ScreenTransition.Fade
)

 

Hi @happyuce ,

What does v1 do?

My thoughts initially were something in the screen transition, although I have never tried leaving a screen with pending data without saving it. Others in the group may be able to offer some thoughts.

v1 is just a global variable which I display at the end summary screen for user to review and then submit to sharepoint list.

Apparantly it has started to work upon restart.

 

However I also have a Gallery table where user can rate various questions (using star rating).

This star rating recorded value does not pass when I navigate forward but if I navigate forward -> back , fill again and then navigate forward, then the star rating does pass along to the end screen.
