Copying Controls from Canvas into Teams



I'm trying to recreate an app in Teams that I've already built outside as the approval process for migrating the app is not working. I have managed to copy controls from a Canvas app into Teams before but it no longer seems to work. Can anyone shed any light on why this might be?

Are you copying them because you need all the associated formulas or just because Dataverse controls either don't exist or don't have all the same functionality?


If you just want the 'classic' controls, go to Settings in your Dataverse App and at the bottom under Experimental features, turn on 'Classic' controls.


Try this if you need the formulas.


DON'T right click and use that copy function, that doesn't seem to work.    Select your control and use the ctrl-c keyboard combination and then use ctrl-v to paste it into your app.


I just tested this and it works.
