Move or Copy a SharePoint list PowerApps Custom Form

It would be nice to be able to create a SharePoint list PowerApps Custom Form in one site or list (e.g. development) and then be able to move it to another site or list (e,g, production). This would help with development and teting of new and updated forms before they are released to the production. This could also help with the reuse of form designs, so a person isn't always recreating the wheel.

Hi @R3dKap ,
Issue got resolved .The issue was I creating the list using PNP command, Becoz of this app reference was generated in xml file. I had removed the old app reference in that and it worked like a champ.😊

If somebody on the same page please remove the reference in xml file.

Almost 2 years later and the feature still isn't there?

 

When Microsoft build PowerApps, guarantee they have Dev/Test/Prod environments (at least) that they use to develop new features. It amazes me they didn't deliver the ability to have different environments within PowerApps to start with as it's a basic development methodology.

 

It's also a bit of a problem in PowerBI, so they may be working on a unified approach? Some type of update from Microsoft would be good...

Agreed.  I know InfoPath was a round for a lot longer and so had more time to get things right and for all intents and purposes PowerApp Customized List are a very viable replacement.  But Microsoft having given no effort to allowing migration between Development and Production blows my mind.  This is without a doubt so very important.  That along with saving one template that all forms start from to ensure uniformity but that is secondary to the 50+ Hours I spend designing these applications.

Yes, a huge shame and seems like a massively overlooked deficiency in the PowerApps story.  Migrating PowerApps between SharePoint lists (e.g. promotion from DEV) seems incredibly tedious to do manually if it is truly possible at all.  And from a DevOps pipeline it seems impossible to automate.  But the issue does seem to be somewhat systemic to the Power Platform in general - the "enterprise grade" robustness required to take Power Platform stuff and package it for deployment and promotion through environments doesn't seem to be there yet.

Hopefully this "feature" will come soon - and it's been a long time coming!
