Delete SharePoint customized form from PowerApps admin center.

We can use PowerApps to customize the SharePoint list form, but we can not delete customized forms in the PowerApps Admin Center.
We need to delete them from SharePoint.
Customized form will remain on PowerApps If we deleted the SharePoint list.
It is causing trouble in management because there is no way to delete the customized form.
If we can deleted the customized form from PowerApps side, it will be nice to manage.

 

But the best implementation is that when we delete the SharePoint list, the customized form on PowerApps will also be deleted.

 

I hope you to consider the implementation.
Thank you.

I've discovered an issue with remainig customized list forms in the form storage. I'm not able to create a new one since powerapps tells me there's already an form with that name.

Additional functionality like the mentioned would be a great.

When importing a Sharepoint Form from a package, we cannot update an existing Sharepoint Form. The list of PowerApps which can be updated contains only canvas apps. Therefore, the only way to import is to create a new app. Unfortunately, there is no way to delete existing Sharepoint Form from the admin interface. I've tried with PowerShell cmdlets but they fail with a 'conflict' error message.

Does anyone have any solution to this?

 

Deleting SharePoint list is not a solution, because even after deleting the list the form app stays in Power Apps and we would like to clean such customized form app from Power Apps.

 

Thanks

All,

I found the answer to this in another post with the same question:

 

- Go to the list's List Settings in SharePoint

- In Settings, click on Form Settings

- If you've Customized form in PowerApps, the bullet for "Use a custom form" will be selected

- Select "Use the default SharePoint form

- Once that is selected, the link for the option below it will appear "Delete custom form"

Hi staceylaney,

 

Thanks for your response.

 

What if the source sharepoint list is deleted?

 

Thx,

@ketan03  - Not sure about that, unfortunately.  I would think the deleted list would delete the PowerApps customized form though, since those are not stored on the PowerApps site (cloud) like those not created through the "Customize form" on SP.  I'm not 100% on that though, sorry.

By the way, even if sometimes, the PowerApps form can be deleted automatically from SharePoint, here we need a way to delete the SharePoint forms which could not be deleted by the system, for example when the upload of a package failed.

Hi Community - just wanted to let you know that it it possible(as a workaround) to delete the sharepoint custom forms with power automate.... you can simply create a flow with a manual trigger and a variable to add the environment- and app-id and run the delete app-action - this works, even this is not really comfy 😆
I know - it's a workaround and not great but better than nothing 😎

Runs pretty smooth as you can see
