Submitted data from PowerApps cannot be searched

I designed the PowerApps for adding, editing and searching chemical inventory in my lab. For searching at first, I imported original data from sharepoint. It can search very well. After I allowed user to add chemicals to the sharepoint using Powerapps, the new data can be updated to sharepoint properly. However, the updated data cannot be founded by searching in Powerapps. What should I do for the data that cannot be searched?

Re: Submitted data from PowerApps cannot be searched



I am not 100% sure I am getting what you mean but I think you just need to add in that when a new item is added it does a Refresh for that SharePoint list. 


Do you mean that when they add a new item it is going to the sharepoint list but not showing in the app unless they open and close it again? If so, the Refresh is the answer to your issue.
