SharePoint List Powerapps Form Permission

I created a form out of a SharePoint list using powerapps.  While testing the form with my test account which has edit capabilities to the list, I notice that I'm allowed to access the Powerapps dropdown and customize the form.  I only want my admin account to have this access so no one can go in and delete or break anything set up.  Is there a way to do this?

Re: SharePoint List Powerapps Form Permission

Hi @MikeNJ00,


Did you mean that you only want the users to use the app not editing/designing the app? If so, then when you share the app, you just need to uncheck the Co-worker option:

Re: SharePoint List Powerapps Form Permission

Hi Mona,


I didn't share the app, I just published it to the list (or is that the same thing?)  I wanted the users to just be able to use the form and not be able to alter it, but anyone with edit access to the sharepoint list seems to be able to access and edit the form.  One thing I didn't mention is that I created the app by click on "Customize Form" through the SharePoint list.  Should I have used "Create an app"?


I basically don't want users to have access to the "Customize Form" in the powerapps dropdown on the list:

Re: SharePoint List Powerapps Form Permission

I have this same issue. I modified a SharePoint Form in PowerApps and I only want Site Owner or a specific group of users to be able to modify the Form. But it appears anyone who can edit the list can also modify the Form. How do I restrict a user from being able to modify the Form in PowerApps, but can still use the form to create a new item in the list?


In addition, it appears in order for the user to be able to use the SharePoint Form, the user needs a license to PowerApps. Is this correct and is this the only option with customizing a SharePoint Form via PowerApps?
