version. save why not overwrite ?

Hi 

 

I like to check when I edit and save my powerapp which is not published that I embedded in my SharePoint site, the updated changed saved version did not update into the site.  why??  I thought is it link?

 

2nd, I notice that after I saved, the details show in PowerApps are 

version 2 ..

Version 1... live

 

why are there so many version and why is it not overwriting the same copy?  I don't want so many version..

 

Thank you

Yes, PowerApps will automatically remove the history for any versions over 6 months ago.  There is no limit to the number of versions.

 

And to answer your 2nd question: you must "Publish" your app to see the changes reflected in it.  If the changes are not present after this you might need to clear your web browser cache.  

The "Save" action only saves your progress to the editor.  No others can see it.

Actually, you do want this.  You just don't know it yet 😉

 

PowerApps will create a new version on each 'Save' action and you have the ability to restore from any point up to 6 months in the past.  This is an incredibly helpful and important feature.

OK, does it mean that after 6 months it will auto remove the earlier version?

 

and why is the data not updated into the SP site which I had link with PowerApps when I make changes in PowerApps and saved?

 

Thanks.
