I've customized a SharePoint list form using PowerApps and I don't see an option anywhere that would allow me to make the app large or responsive. So far PowerApps-customized forms look like a joke. Does anyone know if there is a way to "stretch" this form?

I know, that Microsoft might think that it's so small because it's "mobile first". But the thing is that PowerApps-customized forms don't show in SharePoint mobile apps anyway. So what's the point of these PowerApps being so slim? Can someone, please comment on it?

The modern SharePoint lists are built using React framework I believe. This way the form loads without a page reload happening. The forms loads within a Canvas which is on the same page(List). Even I couldn't find a way of resizing this canvas. An app created here could be resized but possibly not the list form.

    The question was about a PowerApps-customized item forms, not about the modern lists or classic PowerApps. I see that there is no "Width" property available in PowerApps for the screen. The only way to override it would be a terrible hack by using SPFx application customizer that will change the widths of multiple elements, including elements inside an iFrame (because PowerApps item form is loaded in an iframe) – Denis Molodtsov Apr 4 at 20:31

At the moment, PowerApps-customized SharePoint list forms do not support resizing.

Some poor workaround options:

  • Create the full PowerApp. If you do that you will have to either jump from one URL to another between PowerApps and SharePoint.
  • Use something that is not PowerApps. For example, SPFx

Per my test in my SharePoint online environment, I customize the list from in PowerApps. When I create new item or edit the item, there is no such white space in the form. enter image description here

To troubleshoot the issue, you could check things below:

  1. Clear IE cache.

  2. Switch to other browser to check if the same issue will occur.

Using PowerApps to customize the list form is the new feature. And it will be improved in the future.

There is a workaround.

You could customize the list form in InfoPath.

Per my test in my SharePoint online environment, by default it will not open a new tab when I create a new item or edit the item.

  • Thank you, Amy. Try clicking on the "Copy link" button and open it in the new tab. This way you can reproduce what I am talking about. – Denis Molodtsov Apr 4 at 20:32
