Importing my Canvas App to my SharePoint List Powerapps

I created a Canvas App (data connection is my SharePoint List), but now I want to be able to import that Canvas app to my SharePoint List PowerApps Customization.  Is this possible?  I tried exporting and importing, but it is not attaching to my list.  Do I have to recreate it using the Customized Forms option?

A common point of confusion when creating PowerApps, is the difference between the two different types of apps. As you are talking about customization I would say that there are two different types of apps.

 

1) When you go to a list in SharePoint, and click the PowerApps menu and choose Customize forms, you are creating a customized list PowerApp. The same thing can be done from list settings –> Form Options.

 

2) When you create a PowerApps in any other way, such as going to web.powerapps.com, and clicking Create an app, or Make this app, or even if you go to the SharePoint list and click PowerApps –> Create an app…. all of these other ways will create a standalone app.

 

Related to your query on exporting and importing the app will work in the case of standalone app scenario alone.
