Is it possible to extract or output a list of changes made to your application? When making changes to an application, I would like to see a list of those changes. We make dozens of changes to an application and save them. We would like to record and review (list) anything that is outside the default values. Changes are made and saved but because the code is not visible, it is challenging to see where all the changes are. Also the revision control should allow you to write comments at the time of save so you can know what you want to revert back to if the time should come. Currently I have to guess what changes were made in a specific revision. The rollback feature, while beneficial could be more helpful if there were a way to document changes. Maybe something like Git Blame documentation. Reference: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Forum/list-of-changes-applied-to-app/m-p/51398#M21423 Thank you, W.

I am juggling multiple apps and sometimes I forget what variables and collections are used for. I'd love to be able to see where each collection and variable is defined and where it is used (if at all). If I have an old variable or collection I created but don't need, I'd be better able to see it if this was centrally. I know most of this info is available for variables now, but not for collections. I think Variables and Collections should be merged and then you can drill down into the variable or collection to see the columns and records if necessary. Being able to annote each variable or collection would also greatly improve long-term ALM, especially if I pass on this app to another developer. It would be nice to have all the documentation contained in the app itself. Bonus: A 'Documentation' or 'Admin' tab that has reports on resources currently being used by app (variables, collections, controls, media, etc.) and maybe warnings if there are potential issues. Double Bonus: Allow admin's to set/declare variables (and collections) from a central location as part of the central management features (essentially replacing "OnStart" with a GUI)
