An error appears in Microsoft Power Apps.

There was a problem saving your data. The name could be too long.

This only occurs when using the SaveData function to save data to the device. There may be too much data in the collection that is being saved, but the data still appears to be saved correctly.

This discussion indicates it is related to the number of records being saved. It also appears that this is a recent bug that Microsoft is promising to fix by the end of the month. That was posted yesterday.
