Use an existing Powerapp as a template?

I have an existing powerapp which is basically a list of people with some contact information. What I'd like to do is use the powerapp I created as a template to make another app with a different list of people. Basically just change the data connection to a new SharePoint list with new people and save the app with a different name. Is this possible?

Re: Use an existing Powerapp as a template?

Please take a try with the steps below and see if it would meet your requirements:

1. Export the App,

2. Import it again, name it with a different name, after that, switch the SharePoint connection with the proper list,

3. Make sure the newly added list has the same schema as the original one, and then switch the data source to the new List with all the involved controls

 

Adding some reference:

Environment and tenant app migration through Packaging
