View changes to a record made by a cloud flow

I have a canvas app with an edit form to modify an existing record. There is a cloud flow that runs when the record is saved, which updates the record (in some circumstances).

The problem is that I can't see the changes made by the flow immediately because it takes several seconds to run the flow in the background. So I have tried navigating to another screen (when the form is submitted), which has a 10 second timer (the flow is usually completed in about 4 seconds). After the timer has run it then navigates back to the detail form. Still no updates are showing even though I know the record has been changed.

I am assuming this is because the cache has not been refreshed for this record.

Is there a way that I can see the changes the flow has made to the record without going back to the gallery view?

Hi @barrypyle,


This looks like a Power Apps related question instead of Power Pages. I would suggest to post this in the Power Apps community. There are definitely some people out there who can help you out with this:


Happy to help out! 🙂

As per other post, the DataVerse or Building powerapps forum would be the more appropriate place to log this one.


Flow for DataVerese is not synchronous (i.e. real-time), do not rely on 10 seconds etc it can actually take several minutes for a Flow to start.  If something needs to be done immediately you need to look at using a real-time Workflow (not Flow) or a synchronous Plugin, or if there is a way to in your scenario to hook up a HTTP triggered Flow (HTTP trigger is synchronous).
