PowerApss does not support folders in SharePoint lists when creating new items

Currently, when you create a new item using a SharePoint list customized form, PowerApps does not support list folders. Meaning, it is always created at the root level of the list regardless of the folder you are in when you create it.

To avoid the 5000 limit of items in lists, when often use folders. But if PowerApps cannot place newly created items in folders... well it's useless.

So, if you could please provide PowerApps with the support of folders, it'd be great.

Thanks.

Status: Started

Assuming that document libaries are the target for folders here, and not lists (since SharePoint Lists do not support folders), the work is started. I don't have an estimated release date yet, but will keep updating this item as the work progresses.

 

Thank you,

Audrie

This has actually been implemented in our Forms solution - https://plumsail.com/forms/

If you are looking for an alternative app, which would create an item right in the folder which your List View shows currently, in Modern UI, check it out!

@Audrie-MSFT  - Any update on this feature? Dev work has been started in Oct-2018 but there is no update afterward. Do we have ETA for this feature? We have couple of critical project need where we need to create a folder in SharePoint list and powerapps does not support adding an item inside the folder. Please update. 

 

Thanks in advance.

I am sorry I did not see your message to me. Adding Filip @FilipK to comment on this as a feature request.

You can however, drill into folders using the formulas. I do understand that this is not ideal.

 

Filip: Can you ask who should update this request moving forward?

 

Thank you for your patience,

Audrie
