Converting InfoPath Form into PowerApp Form -- Possible?

Knowing that InfoPath is a thing of the past and PowerApp is the new way... Is it possible to actually take an existing InfoPath form and convert it into PowerApp without have to rebuild or build from scratch? I viewed videos regarding comparisons between the two and such... but have not found anything saying that one can actually simply convert IP to PA and then make adjustments.

 

Please advise...  tga

This is the video I did. I haven't been told it is terrible yet. Smiley Happy 

 

Customize forms like Infopath

 

Are you super new to PowerApps? Do you maybe need to learn some basics first and then try to start customizing forms? 

 

Learn PowerApps

 

If SharePoint is your data source I would start with that video.

Short answer no.

 

The underlying technology and behaviors of PowerApps do not function the same, you will have to rebuild any InfoPath forms according to PowerApps fields/functions, etc.

I was afraid of that but was keeping hope alive... So is there a really good online tutorial giving step by step on how to build a form with PowerApps? As stated, I viewed a couple videos on it but already lost after starting to try it...

 

Thanks...

Re: Converting InfoPath Form into PowerApp Form -- Possible?

Thanks a bunch for the info!!  I am new to PowerApps but a lot of background with InfoPath so not too green... I will check out the links you provided and see where it gets me... I am starting with "converting" a longtime form that has currently has unique controls in it when completing it along with other features... so that might be giving me some qualms versus just creating a straight forward form. 

 

Again, thanks for the response and assistance... I will certainly report back as needed.  ;-)

Hey I should have shared this last time whoops. Have you seen this page? https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/ It includes some resources and a link to a whitepaper I wrote on the mindset for converting from InfoPath to PowerApps.
