Why settings are different between Create an app and Customize forms on PowerApps?

Hello,

 

I do not think this one is a bug, but I wonder why I am not able to use 'scale to fit it' when I start PowerApps from 'Customize forms' on SharePoint List like below.

I have found the menu 'Scale to fit it' when I start PowerApps from 'Create an app' on SharePoint list.

However, I can not see the men when I start PowerApps from 'Customize forms' on SharePoint list as below.

Do you know the reason why?

Hi @charlotte ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I think you have some misunderstanding on canvas app and Custom form app.

 

Actually, the app created from "Create an app" option and "Customize forms" option have different app type. The app created from "Create an app" option is a standard alone canvas app, but the app created from "Customize forms" option is a SharePoint Form App.

 

You could go to your PowerApps Admin Center, then switch to your current PowerApps Environment, and click the Resources tab, then you could see all app resources there:

Currently, within "Custom form" app, the "Scale to fit" option is not available. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi

 

Thank you for your reply.

I tried to  switch to the current PowerApps Environment to "Create an app" from 'Customize forms', but I wasn't able to do it as you can see the below there is no any value I can switch in the current environments of Admin Center. Please could you let me know what I have to take another action to switch the options.

Hi @charlotte ,

Do you want to create a standalone canvas app based on your SP List?

Do you want to switch your PowerApps Environment?

 

If you want to switch your PowerApps Environment, please go to your PowerApps Web Portal, then click "Environment" switch option as below:

More details about generating an app based on SP list, please refer to the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/app-from-sharepoint

 

Please consider go to the Power Platform Admin Center to preview your available PowerApps Environment:

Re: Why settings are different between Create an app and Customize forms on PowerApps?

Hi,

 

Thank you for you response.

Fundamentally, I would like to switch 'Scale to fit' the canvas app based on SP List as the canvas app does not show whole items on Mobile app.

Therefore, it does not matter if I would like to switch PowerApps Environment or switch to 'Scale to fit'.

However, I do not expect to create a standalone canvas app based on SP List all over again.

The reason above, I chose to switch PowerApps Environment, but I am afraid that I still cannot switch the environment.

As you mentioned, I went to PowerApps web portal as below, but I cannot switch  on it.

I click on the 'Environment' on the right top, but it does not happen anything.

Could you tell me what is wrong?
