I have a SharePoint list which have around 50 fields, I provided detailed description about those fields inside the SharePoint fields' Description section, as follow:

enter image description here

And when using the built-in list forms >> those descriptions show under the fields, as follow:

enter image description here

But when we created a power app which contain a form, seems the power apps forms will ignore those descriptions, as follow:

enter image description here

So how I can show the fields descriptions inside Power apps forms? under the fields (in a similar manner how the description shows on the built-in list forms)? any advice?

As per my knowledge, there is no native Power Apps way supported for showing SharePoint fields' Descriptions automatically inside the Power Apps forms.

Similar threads:

  1. Power Apps connected form does not show descriptions from corresponding list columns

  2. How to get SharePoint field description? - This thread has some workarounds like using separate SharePoint list to store the descriptions of fields

  3. DataCardKey to pull through SP List column description

There is feedback/idea on Microsoft feedback portal for same, you can vote on it: Fetch SharePoint Field Description and use it in Powerapps
