Open Form in new/full Tab/Window

Afternoon all,


Now - firstly, I've been using PowerApps for about 30sec now 🙂

(I want to start building my SPO forms in P'Apps and eventually rebuild all my old InfoPath forms in P'Apps).


Anyway - to the point.

From a list and I click 'new'. The PowerApps form open in a sort-of side bar on the left hand side.

How do I get it to open in a fill window? (Be it the same, a new window, or a new tab)

Hi @JasonWeber ,


I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved so far. The only way I could think of is selecting the Copy Link on the top after clicking the New button.




If you really need this, please consider to post an idea in PowerApps idea forum here:

I just facing this issue and I found a work around solution, by using the "Column Formatting", you can make a button for user to click and open the form in new tab (or existing tab), the steps as below:

  1. Under the list, click the title of the column, select "Column Settings" > "Format this column"
  2. Click "Advanced mode" at the bottom of the right hand side panel
  3. Copy & paste the following code and click Save button


  "$schema": "",
  "elmType": "a",
  "txtContent": "@currentField",
  "style": {
    "box-shadow": "1px 10px 14px -7px #3e7327",
    "background": "linear-gradient(to bottom, #77b55a 5%, #72b352 100%)",
    "background-color": "#33b55a",
    "border-radius": "4px",
    "border": "1px solid #666",
    "cursor": "pointer",
    "color": "#ffffff",
    "font-size": "13px",
    "font-weight": "bold",
    "padding": "1px 10px",
    "margin-top": "5px",
    "margin-bottom": "13px",
    "text-align": "center",
    "text-decoration": "none",
    "text-shadow": "1px 1px 0px #666",
    "min-height": "30px",
    "line-height": "30px",
    "width": "80%",
    "white-space": "nowrap",
    "display": "inline-block"
  "attributes": {
    "target": "_blank",
    "href": {
      "operator": "+",
      "operands": [
    "iconName": "Edit",
    "title": "[$Title]"


of cause, you can fine tune the style of the button by edit the "style" attribute, and update the "target" attribute to define the tab is open in new tab or not.
