deleted records from sharepoint list still showing in app

Hello, 

 

I have an app connected to a sharepoint list and when I was testing the app I created a bunch of test records. 

 

Now I am ready to roll the app out, I deleted most of the test records from the sharepoint list but they are still showing in the app.

 

I deleted them from the recycle bin as well but they are still showing. Additionally as a test: I edited a record using the app that had been deleted from the SP list and got a success message, but I still don't see the record back on the SP list. 

 

pics for reference - 

 

only 1 item left in SP list

You must have deleted these Items directly inside SharePoint.  When you do this the changes don't appear in Power Apps Studio until you 'refresh' the datasource.  Do this by going to the left side menu, then refresh the SharePoint connector.

 

If you open the app in Play mode it is not necessary to refresh.

Have you considered using Refresh function (if you delete your data from PowerApps) or simply refreshing data source to include any Sharepoint change in PowerApps?

I have refreshed the date source and the deleted record is still showing.
