Can't connect to data source in powerapp (sharepoint)

Hello!

I'm trying to follow these two examples: 
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/modules/work-with-external-data/2-add-data-source
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/add-data-connection

But the searchbar/datasources pane is completely bare. What gives? The links makes it look like no effort, but so far I have spent the majority of my day being confused about the subject.

Re: Can't connect to data source in powerapp (sharepoint)

I figured out that by changing to Firefox (from Chrome) the correct menus/icon appear. I tried to update chrome, but I had som trouble with this so I just ende up switching browser.

TL;DR: Issue was browser-related.

Re: Can't connect to data source in powerapp (sharepoint)

Hello @PNman ,

I'm currently seeing the same issue with both IE and Chrome. I tried switching to Firefox, the data sources show (which is good), but I can't add another data source from SP.

To my understanding I should be able to add another data source correct? Even if I built an app from an original data source?
