Troubles with a simple 'add new record' SP-list app

I have had some experience with Powerapps in the past, but it seems a lot of updates have been pushed.

Right now I'm helping a collegue with a simple app based on a SP list which has:

* a PERSON field that is a lookup from peoplepicker

* a CRISIS field that is a lookup from a separate list


The puris that people can register their presence for a crisiscommunication with the app;

i.e. open app => select the crisis that is the subject of the meeting => select person from list => register presence


When I create a new single screen app with a form, a dropdown for CRISIS, a dropdown for PERSON and a button to submit said form, there are a few problems:

1) When I created the app from a sharepointlist, it was built and shown as a CRUD app, but immediatly after the initial 3 view app was built, I got this error.

"Error loading [datasource]. The specified record could not be found."

2) most of the time only "No item to display" is shown and no form

3) When you pick a value from the dropdown, you can't come back on your choice and pick another value.

You also can't reset the form, the dropdownvalue isn't reset.




I'm forgetting a few things but this was mostly yesterday late at night. Will update when I can.
