Problem with Accessing Data from a List in App Lab

My students have been working on their create task in app lab. And they mentioned today that is not allowing them to access a column or data in a list that worked just yesterday is not working today without changing their code. The column is present in the data tab, but the error states that it does not have data or cannot access that data from that column. I thought if it were one or two it would be a personal issue, but it turns out about 10 kids were having the same problem today. Can this be addressed? And is anyone else having this problem?

Yes, it seems like this problem is widespread (there’s another post on it, and a post on the facebook group). It’s very frustrating! Hopefully they’ll be able to fix it soon.
