App fully functional on the browser but not working on mobile

I am creating an application in PowerApps and while testing in the browser it works well...

When I change to mobile it seems to not fire a button trigger and change form!

Why is this happening? Why there is a difference between browser and mobile app?


Also, I have a datasource that is an Azure Function but I have updated the function and also the datasource to have different parameters... the problem is that the new parameters do not appear to be refreshed upon datasource edit...


Can anyone help me out?


Thank you

Hi Luis,


I've had issues recently where I've made changes to data sources (in my case SP lists) and those changes working online but not in mobile apps even after refreshing the app and downloading the new version.


The only solution I've found so far is to remove the modified data source and then re-add it again. This seems to force the mobile apps to update their sources and then it works again.


Hope it helps,

Hi LuisSimoes,


About #1, how do you configure the button control and form control? What functions are you using?


What's your phone verion and PowerApps verion on your phone?


About #2, I have reported a similar issue on another thread (though the data source is SharePoint list), the thread link is:


It seems that delete the data source then re-add it will work. Please try it on your side. And PGs are working on a fix for this.

This is the function I am currently using and that works on the browser:



Navigate(ChargingStationScreen; ScreenTransition.Fade; { selectedChargingStation: GalleryCases.Selected.connectorID_ })



Basically I want to go to the screen refered and pass a variable so that I can lookup the item I am on.



About #2, I had already removing the datasource and readd and it does not work... it always says it has invalid parameters on the function I changed...(like if it was the old version).

Hi LuisSimoes,


About #1, thanks for providing the function for the Button control.

To reproduce this issue, I create an auto-generated app based on SQL On-Premise table.

On the BrowseGallery screen, add a button, set its OnSelect property as Navigate(DetailScreen1,ScreenTransition.Fade,{}).

On the DetailScreen, add a Label control, and set its Text property as test.

Then run the app on Windows, Web, and also iPhone(iOS 10.3.2), the Button is working fine on all the devices, when I select a value on BrowseGallery, then click the button, the selected value would be transferred to DetailScreen and show on the label.

The PowerApps version on my phone is 2.0.630. What’s your phone version and PowerApps version on your phone?

Please try it again on your side, I assume it should work for you.



About #2, I have reported this issue on my side and back to you once I got any updates on this issue.

Also, I try to remove and re-add the data source then save the app, when the next time I open the app, the error “Invalid name” gone.

Could you please try it again, and let me know if it will work for you.



Best regards,

I'm facing a similar issue. The app i've developed uses Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations along with SharePoint and Office365users connectors. When a form (connected to a D365 FinOps datasource) is submitted, a few fields are computed in the server before the record is inserted. The computed fields are then accessed in PowerApps using the LastSubmit function.


These fields are returning the correct values in the desktop as well as Android phones but doesn't work as expected in IPhone.


I've tried reinstalling the app on the phone, cleared the cache, removed and added the datasource before publishing the app again. Nothing seems to fix the issue.


Any idea on why this happens? Thanks in advance.
