Creating Power Apps from a SharePoint list/library

A SharePoint list comes with in-built list forms that let users create or update records in the list. Power Apps gives you the ability to change the form-editing experience. Once the form is customized using Power Apps, it takes over the SharePoint item-editing experience.

The following are some use cases when you should consider using Power Apps:

  • Including a logo on the form
  • Hiding some list fields from the end-user
  • Managing the conditional visibility of list fields
  • Adding conditional formatting in the form editing experience
Custom forms for lists are only supported in generic lists at the moment. Custom list and library templates are currently not supported, including, but not limited to, lists such as Announcements, Contacts, and Tasks.
