Renaming Custom Forms

Hello Community,

I have a PowerApp with several customized forms. When I originally created the appliction I did not use the best naming conventions so I want to go back and update the names of these forms. However, when I do, my forms completely reformat and I have to spend a significant amount of time fixing them to appear as they did previously.


Has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something wrong? Is this a known issue? 


To rename the form I am using the tree view > rename. This works fine for other entities (controls, galleries, data tables, etc.) as well as forms that are not customized, I have only experienced this with custom forms.

Hi @mccarthyk 


How do you change your App's name?

Could you please reference this?



I test on my side and don't have the issue.

Could you please change other Browsers to test?


Best Regards.

Hello @v-yuxima-msft,

I apologize for the delayed response. However, it is not the SharePoint list/PowerApp form that I am trying to rename. It is the form within a canvas PowerApps. See the attached screenshot as an example.



Thank you,



Has no one resolved this? I am having this same issue and almost a year later from the original post. Tried in Edge and Google Chrome.

Nope, this has not been resolved. I still encounter this issue as well and have had to work around it since posting originally.
