Sharepoint forms - possible to have more than one 'edit' form type?

I've searched and couldn't find an answer....


I'm exploring the possibility of using powerapps in conjunction with a sharepoint list we use to manage project ideas.

I'd like more than one edit form. Possibly one wdit form with fewer fields for an initial entry, one edit form showing all fields for a detailed entry and another edit form for a subset of fields (for use in business case preparation).


This last form would effectively be replacing an excel businss case document we currently send to people to gather their input.


Before i spend any more time searching, can anyone tell me if this can be solved using a sharepoint and powerapps forms?

In powerApps, you can split your form into multiples dependant on another control e.g. Status = 1 only show fields 1,2,3, Status = 2, show fields 1,2,3,4,5.


The one trick is to make sure that your SharePoint List does not have any required fields that may be shown later in the process. If you do, the hidden parts of the form will throw an error. Set the required option within PowerApps.
