How to identify site for SharePoint list in existing data source

I have a connection to our SharePoint online environment. When I use the connection to create a data source from a SharePoint list, I can see the data source listed in the PowerApps side panel, but it only shows the list name. There is no information about the site collection or site that hosts the list.


We have hundreds of SharePoint sites and I need to know exactly which site a specific list data source relates to.


The three dots next to the data source only have commands to Refresh or Remove.


How can I identify the site URL for a SharePoint list data source?

Re: How to identify site for SharePoint list in existing data source

Hi @IngeborgNZ,


It seems that there is no where so far in PowerApps studio to see more detailed information about the site name/URL of the SharePoint list data source listed. This could be a good idea to add, I suggest that you could post this idea in the PowerApps Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.
