Creating Power App from a sharepoint list

If I create a Power App based on a SharePoint list, is there a way to get the Power App to automatically add new columns that I add to my SharePoint list? For instance, I created a demo with 10 data points for a user to fill in. The real app will have closer to 20-30. Since I already built the demo is there a way to get these new fields that I add to the list to automatically update in the app or do I have to go back and create the app again, thus losing any custom additions I may have added. 

 

Thanks for the help

Re: Creating Power App from a sharepoint list

@rsimcoe you do not have to re-create the app. After adding new fields open your app for authoring and you will see the new fields in the fields list. Add the fields wherever required (form, gallery, etc.) and then save and publish the new version of the app.

 

We do not automatically add new fields in forms (or other controls) since that varies based on the scenario i.e. in many scenarios may not want new fields to automatically start showing up.
