I want to add a field that contains the version number - every time something/specific records are changed, the version number is incremented. I am aware that there is an OOTB system field called Version Number (versionnumber with a data type of time stamp), however it is not being displayed on the form editor. Is there a way to add this field?
Alternatively, I would like to display a field (possibly a custom field?) that will increment every time a user revises/makes changes to a record. Is there any work around/solution to this?
You can refer to the following documentation to add the field into your forms.
Add a column to a model-driven app form in Power Apps - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs
It works with both OOTB fields and custom fields.
If this helped you, I'd appreciate it if you'd mark this as a Verified Answer, which may in turn help others as well.
WHERE WOULD ONE FIND THE VERSION NUMBER?
Adding a column to a table is not the question. I have customized many things in powerapps.
Where does powerapps keep the version number? Can I access it or is it restricted?
Thank you @Nya for your answer. Unfortunately, this is not what I was looking for.
My question is:

@urklnme You should find the field on the Solution. However, it is not displayed as an available field on the form editor.
I tried to create a field called “ver”, whose data type is Whole Number. It is a required field.
My idea is to create Flow via Automate to add 1 to this field every time a record is updated.
However, as this field itself is cumulative is also a type of update, it will also trigger this flow and the value of this field will keep getting bigger.
At the moment I can only do this by adding a field update condition to the flow's trigger, e.g. the flow is only triggered when the fullname is updated.
Then add 1 to the ver field for each update.
This can be cumbersome for entities with a large number of fields, requiring a list of all the fields to be statistically updated.
However, since the Version Number that comes with the system cannot be added directly in the Form, nor can it participate in Calculate or Process assignment, this is the best solution that I can think of at the moment.
Curious to know if an environment variable would be a good idea in this effort? I haven't used one to this point.
