Auto Convert an InfoPath forms into a PowerApps form

Hi,

 

I've been developing InfoPath forms in my organization for 3 years, InfoPath was merely enough for me now, but I need to advance steps ahead and be more prepared for future changes, so I'm considering to start using PowerApps and Flow.

 

My main concern is if there is any tool that could auto-convert (migrate) InfoPath forms into PowerApps forms or any other middling template or something like that?

Regards,

Re: Auto Convert an InfoPath forms into a PowerApps form

Hi Talal_Albahra,

 

We can create an App to read and write data from a data source. In PowerApps.com, create a connection from PowerApps to one or more data sources, and then access data from your App. Currently, SharePoint, SQL Server, Excel, and other data sources are included in the available connections list of PowerApps, if you would like to migrate InfoPath forms into PowerApps forms, you could submit an idea about adding InfoPath as an available connection at PowerApps Ideas Forum:

This article about PowerApps available connections list could be a reference:

I don't think it's appropriate to mark this as "Solved".

 

The user's question was "My main concern is if there is any tool that could auto-convert (migrate) InfoPath forms into PowerApps forms or any other middling template or something like that?"

 

It sounds like there is NOT a conversion or migration tool. Telling someone to submit that as an idea is NOT solving the problem.
