Possible to convert a powerapps list form to powerapps application?

Good morning. 

 

I've tried to convert a powerapps list form to powerapps application. Steps:

- export powerapps list form package

- delete the list form

- Import the package from the powerapps studio with a new name

 

> but it's not creating an application, just a copy of the powerapps list form

 

so, is it possible to manage this, I cannot find details for that subject.

Thnaks

Hi @ebarondev ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to convert a custom form (created via PowerApps) in your SP list into a standalone canvas app?

 

If you want to convert a custom form (created via PowerApps) in your SP list into a standalone canvas app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

The custom form app (created via PowerApps) in a SP list is different from the standalone canvas app. The Custom form app (SharePoint Form App type) and the standalone canvas app (Standard App type) have different App type.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

I haven't tried this, but the only real difference between the two is the SharePoint Integration object that you can see in the left panel. But I'm not sure how you would delete that, so I don't think there is an easy way to convert between an embedded form and a regular Powerapp.

our customer would like now to have a standalone canvas app rather than a custom list form created with powerapps. As I don't want to start from zero, I was hoping for a solution, but not suprise it's not possible for now. Thanks

Converting the app is not possible, but you could copy paste the controls from the list form into a standalone app, this should save you a lot of time.
