Toggle Switch for Error Reporting

PowerApps Team,

 

It would be extremely beneficial if you could create a Toggle Switch for Error reporting. Many of my App users experience the errors coming on top of the screen and think that there's something wrong with the App, just because it failed to load a picture.

 

The error comes from a picture not loading when PowerApps uses the outlook list and when it sees a person that doesn’t have a profile picture (i.e. anyone’s email outside of my organization). Please create a way to toggle the error reporting off so users don't see messages like this:

Thank you.

We've recently added an experimental feature for handling errors at the formula level, and have more improvement on the way here soon. Adding @GregLi who his working in this area.

Yes, this is absolutely necessary. Users are seeing errors anytime there is NULL value returned by the API and we have no way to hide it. I already reported it directly do MS through our internall company channels so lets just hope for some quick solution.

I agree.  Popping up red error messages to the end-user is not anyone's idea of a good user interface.  On top of that there are no controls on what shows up in these error messages.  So, many times that are completely goobly **bleep**.  Having mutliple error messages covering half the screen.  Of course, the error messages are useful for debugging...  but not on the live app

The error messages for debugging purposes also dont easily show where the null error is, leading to longer troubleshooting times on complex apps

Yes, this is absolutely necessary. At least we need some options to customize these errors/warnings.

User sense something wrong/error.
