standalone apps vs form customization

Hello All,

 

I am have sharepoint list with almost 70-80 columns which will be filled by many users in SharePoint online.

I have to apply few customization on forms like draft mode, submit mode etc.

 

I am confused, Should i go for standalone apps or list form customization.

 

Users have multiple roles and list item visibility based on that.

 

Can we add multiple roles in Powerapps like creating user master, Creator, rm, Manager hierarchy structure

 

I will have default view where user can see his past items, Manger will see all  items related to him or people reporting to him

 

In list we need to create multiple views and we can have filter. can we have similar in standalone apps.

 

Which way should i go?

 

Please help.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

The main difference is in the application scenario.

Customize a form if you want your users to manage data without leaving SharePoint (for example, in a desktop browser).

Create an app if you want your users to manage data outside of SharePoint (for example, on a mobile device).

 

What both can do is exactly the same, so which to choose depends on the application scenario.

Hope this helps.
