Hi all - I have a highly customized PowerApps form that is default form for a SharePoint list. I have another SharePoint list and I would like to use a copy of the same PowerApps form as the default form for that list. Is there a simple way to do this? Thanks in advance.
Thanks Hardit - I don't have the option to "Save As" under a different name(See attached image - I think this is because it is the default PowerApp tied to the SharePoint list). Any idea if there is another way to do this?
Also, I tried copy the controls from the first form(Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C) and then pasting into the new form(Ctrl +V) but the control did not copy over. Am I doing this the incorrect way? Surprised there is not an easier way to accomplish this.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to copy customized SharePoint forms from one list to another.
There is an post in the ideas forum that you can vote on here.
No worries @PowerAddict. I hope you're right and that there is a way to do this! Thanks for all your great contributions in the forum by the way 🙂
Hi @VisibleFilm ,
Firstly, it's not supported to copy a custom form directly by using PowerApps.
Secondly, you could export components and import components.
I suggest you try components.
You could combine many controls and settings that are common in your original form, save them in a component.
And then export it. In your new form, import this component, which could reduce you much time.
To do you , you need to turn this setting on:
After you create your components in your original form , choose export components.
Then in your new form, choose import components.
Then, your components will be copied in the new form. 😀
Here's a doc about how to use component for your reference:
