    Just posting here to say thanks so much for this. It’s helped resolve a problem with a huge app that I have that I REALLY didn’t want to have to rebuild.

    Nice one 🙂

    Hi @iAm, I did all this yesterday and I am still getting the Improve data source pop-up when I go to settings. The thing is, I do not actually have this option showing in my General area. So honestly, I don’t know how to turn it on. I guess I am wondering if there are specific flags (I am thinking of the 3 things they want turned on from the top of your article) that I could adjust in the Parse Json to turn them on. I don’t seem to be seeing anything that matches. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hi Heidi!
      I’ve actually seen a similar post on the forums recently, and that particular user said that “automatically create environment variables when adding data sources” was the culprit in their case, as it was asking for this setting to be turned on even when it was already turned on – could you check if you have the environment variable toggle on and try turning that off?

    Hi IAm_ManCat,

    I am not sure if you can help me. I did everything as laid out, but it didn’t solve one of my underlying issues. I hoped doing this would sort out an issue I was having with Collections. When I create a collection and go to (x) > Collection > Collection > View Table to see it, I am not getting any column headers. Not only are they missing, but I used to be able to adjust the column size and can’t do that anymore, so many of the columns that show are slivers and it is impossible to read what is in them. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hi Heidi,

      This seems like a bug in the Power Apps interface rather than an issue I can help with – I would try raising a support ticket with Microsoft if that’s still an issue,
