Storage limitations on Cache - Offline Usage

Are there any storage limitations or risks to consider when storing the data in Collections using PowerApps for offline functionality?

Re: Storage limitations on Cache - Offline Usage

Collections and SaveData should be able to handle reasonable amount of data today. Caching a lot of data may result in slow performance or the OS closing PowerApps.

 

It is hard to provide a limit for both as they depend on the device being used and available memory from PowerApps based on the device OS state.

 

We are working on making this experience better.

Hi @pkvaranasi,

 

I think Collections should be able to hold as many records as you want. I also asked about this to pg. I will notice you once I got answers from them.

 

Regards,

Mona

Re: Storage limitations on Cache - Offline Usage

we stopped all our power apps in the company !! it's very limited since we have a lot of lists contains more than 500 items and we are not able to view the filtered items in the gallery .

 

this will affect the future of PowerApps if not working quickly on these limitations. Smiley Sad

@sarafankit

I know this thread is old. However upon testing on multiple devices I found that caching data only works for somewhat newer phones .

My users complained that when the "caching " happens the app crashes with unidentified errors /http errors and kick them back to the very first screen while they are still input the data ....

 - Iphone 7 :  works fine 

 - Iphone 6s: crashes . especially when the go to take some picture to store in the app collection -> the app crashes

My Sharepoint has ~11,000 lines which are the administrative regions in my country. I cached them for better lookup in CAscading dropdown selection.
