Whenever a new tool is released that replaces an existing one, there is always the question of whether the new product is ready and full featured. In the case of Power Apps replacing InfoPath, the answer is a resounding yes.
While InfoPath will still be supported until April of 2023 for legacy systems, there is no guarantee that it will be supported in Microsoft 365 until that time. Microsoft recently announced the end of SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows, giving customers six months to upgrade to 2013 or Power Automate. And it’s not just that they won’t be supported, the flows will stop running. There’s a good chance that the same could happen with InfoPath on M365.
Microsoft 365 is a set of cloud-based tools and functionality that is constantly expanding. PowerApps and Flow are two of the tools available in M365 that allow companies to drastically improve business processes in a fraction of the time it would take for custom development and at a potentially lower cost than third-party services. For those unique situations where a business needs to connect to a custom API with PowerApps or Flow, a developer can create a custom connection that can be leveraged in M365.
