can see only one custom metadata field from a sharepoint document library

I want to build a faceted search that's a little more polished/easy than the default Sharepoint Filter feature (ideally including searching & filtering across multiple folder locations). 


So I started by just trying to list the document library - I'm pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get to that point with power apps 🙂


But I want to filter on custom metadata attributes that I created in sharepoint. Only the first one of these is showing up in the list of available metadata I can display in the list.


Is this a known limitation? How do I get the rest of my custom metadata to appear in this list?

Re: can see only one custom metadata field from a sharepoint document library



Do you mean you can filter by only one custom field? Have you ever modify the column name?

I have tested on my side, don't have the issue you mentioned.

Could you try to delete the Sharepoint connection and re-add it?
