How do I find where a Collection is created?

Hello all,

It would be great to have a way to find where a collection was defined (place or action in the app the actually creates the collection via Collect, ClearCollect, etc. - for example in an OnVisible action or OnSelect action).


This functionality is available for variables but not for collections. It's a nightmare to find where a given collection was created or is being updated within a app w/ lots of screens, actions, controls. etc.


Thanks, Daniel

I totally agree, I just defined a collection and want to change it but I cannot find it 😞

I run into this all the time. Its very easy to trace variables, but impossible with collections. How is this overlooked in the design of PowerApps?

This is very important when an app becomes bigger, it's very time consuming to find where a collection is defined. 
I often find myself spend HOURS trying to find references for collections...
