Auto-convert InfoPath to PowerApps

We have lot of InfoPath to rebuild as PowerApps. 

 

Do we have option to auto-convert (migrate) InfoPath forms into PowerApps forms or any other middling template or something like that?

@RamanN There is currently no option to auto-convert infopath into PowerApps forms. Powerapps "forms" are SharePoint lists customized with PowerApps. I know infopath integrates with SharePoint lists as well so maybe there is a way to convert your current infopath forms to SharePoint lists and then customize those with SharePoint. 

Hi @RamanN ,

This was on my wish list as well.

InfoPath is really the "old" PowerApps as you would know, but are a completely different structure. One thing I did to help change management was have the InfoPath form open on another screen and made the PowerApps integrated form look as much the same as possible, including changing the canvas size in PowerApps to suit.

I understand there is no direct way to automate InfoPath to PowerApps conversion. However, like to know if there is any way to build PowerApps automatically. E.g. create PowerApps based on a input file or PowerShell?

@RamanN ,

The only real "auto build" I know of is the SharePoint Canvas App phone layout, which is pretty basic, but gives you some pre-built screens and controls. Also the SharePoint Integration "Customize in Power Apps" build puts the fields on the screen with some code done. Other than that, it is canvas blank screens and start adding forms, controls and code to them.
