Hi Meagan,

 

Thanks for your feedback. I'll try and respond in two parts - firstly, the approach you're suggestion of using the String/Text data type and then using a combobox in PowerApps to present values to a user is completely valid and there should be nothing stopping you from implementing this today in the service.

 

With regards to why we allow users to add more structured data types like a picklist, this allows us to ensure data consistency across all entry points using the Common Data Service; PowerApps, Flow, Excel, Import/Export, SDK without requiring a end user control in all of these places to ensure data consistency. I understand this does come with some limitations in changing these data types down the road - however we feel it still simplifies the initial app building experience.

 

At this point, we are not planning any features to change this behaviour.

 

Please let me know if I've understood your feedback, and if I can provide any further information.

 

Thanks,

Clay.

Thanks Yahya for the feedback. At the moment we are intentionally showing all entities available within the enviornment to avoid customizers from creating duplicate sets of data within the same environment. The idea being if they can see the entity exists, there is a higher chance they will user that entity and gain access, rather than creating duplicate sets of data within the same environment.

 

If you would like complete seperatation between the customizers, the best approach at this point is to create a seperate environment and control access at that level.

 

I am delicining these feature for the moment, but please continue to provide feedback if this is blocking a specific scenario for you.

 

Thanks,

Clay.
