But what i need is the list of FIELDS/Columns from the DATASources, which  I was able to  just pick , and automatically creates a datacard in my form.

The new Rules tab is great and getting to the Data tab as described above is not a problem. However, there does not appear to be a way to pin the Data tab that allows you to make multiple edits on the data form. Once you make a single change, the Data tab disappears and you have to go back through the same steps to make it visible again. Adding a simple pin/unpin option on the tab would make it usable. 

 

Thanks,

@AndyBarker  you're correct in pointing that out.  There is now no way to have the whole list of all FIELDS for 1 particular SP list from which to choose/tick from.   you'll have to repeat clicking on the Datasource > Data properties to get to each field

@JenVitugthanks, i do understand that is what is required currently, but this is a loss of functionality that previously existed. The current implementation makes the tab virtually useless as you can only change one property at a time before it disappears. It would be great if this could be fixed.

Hi @AndyBarker

 

I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with the new data wizard! I'd like to better understand the problem you're facing. When exactly is the data wizard getting dismissed for you? For me, it seems that I can click the checkboxes to add and remove datacards without the panel dismissing. I can also change the datacards in the Properties pane without dismissing the wizard panel. I can even select controls inside the data card and change them without any dismissal.

 

I know that if I select something outside of the form (like the screen) the wizard will dismiss, but I don't know what steps you're taking here and I suspect that this isn't the case you're hitting. 

 

Also, are you using the Studio or a browser? If a browser what browser?

 

Thanks,

-Paul

I am having the same issue. Specifically, I am trying to make the SharePoint field "Created by" visible. I am using Internet Explorer on Windows 8. I can select the data source and see the available fields, but there is no way to make visible some of the standard SharePoint fields, even when they are made visible in the SharePoint list.
