How do I add an existing Custom Form to an Entity within a Solution?

Hi,

 

Please can someone tell me how I can add a main form to an entity within a solution when creating a model driven app? In our existing CRM solution we have 5 different main forms against the customer entity, however when adding a form to the customer entity within my solution I can only add the standard main form and not any of the other 5 customised main forms which I already have?

 

Kind Regards,

Deepak

Hi Kris,

 

Thank you for your reply and yes you are correct that is what I want to do which is to add a customised main form from within a solution.

 

However I think I have found a way to do this which is:

 

1. Go into the entity within your solution that you wish to add the form for.

2. Click on "Forms".

3. Then switch to classic view. You will now be in the old classic view within your solution and within your chosen entity.

4. You can now add the customised form in the classic view and when you go back to the powerapps version the customised form will be added to your solution.

 

I will submit this as an idea too as it would be worth having this feture within powerapps.

 

Kind Regards,

Deepak

Re: How do I add an existing Custom Form to an Entity within a Solution?

Hi @Dee1 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to add other customized Main Form into your CDS Entity rather than the standard one within a Solution?

 

If you want to add other customized Main Form into your CDS Entity rather than the standard one within a Solution, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

Actually, it is an known limits with Main Form for CDS Entity. Regardless of or not add a new Main Form to a CDS within a Solution, when you added another custom Main Form for your Entity, the new Main Form would be generated based on the standard Main Form. In other words, you could not manually select which type of Main Form you want to create within a Solution.

 

Currently, you could only create a new Main Form, then re-customize the standard Main Form to meet your needs, then name it as a different name.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
