Awareness: SharePoint Designer feature deprecation impacting Custom Form creation

MC210713, Stay Informed, Published date: Apr 25, 2020

FROM MICROSOFT CORPORATION

We’ve identified an issue affecting SharePoint Designer functionality for creating custom Forms within SharePoint Online. After careful examination, we’ve determined that there is no known fix for this issue and have elected to disable the custom Form creation feature effective as of 3:00 AM UTC on Saturday, April 25, 2020. This change does not impact the ability to edit previously created Forms or other existing features in SharePoint Online Designer.

After this change was made, users may have received the error: “Could not save the list changes to the server,” when creating new Forms.

Users who have previously leveraged SharePoint Designer to create custom Forms are instead able to utilize PowerApps for this purpose.

PowerApps is an easy and powerful tool that allows users operating in the SharePoint Online Modern experience to create and edit custom Forms for SharePoint lists and document libraries right from a browser window. PowerApps does not require traditional coding knowledge or any additional app downloads such as InfoPath.

*Note: SharePoint Online Classic users will need to temporarily switch to the Modern experience to access and utilize PowerApps; though, all custom Forms created in PowerApps are accessible by SharePoint Online Classic experience users. Additional information
