After some research, we got a solution to resolve this issue. The following steps that we took to resolve that issue are discussed below.

Approach 1: Rename the Title field in Data Source

  • Initially, we renamed the SharePoint list’s Title column as Full Name and connect that list to the above Power Apps tabbed form.
  • As per the solution, we again renamed the column names from Full Name to Title within the SharePoint list. Then refresh the data source within the Power Apps.
  • Once refreshed, the data card (field) name is modified to Title.
