Hi

 

Has anyone had any dealings with swapping your root site on SPO and what effect that has on custom forms and any powerapps applications built before the swap?

 

I have built a number of forms and applications for my org however i now need to swap the root site and i'm worried that if the URL changes on the root site, all that work will have to be redone.

 

Thanks

Interesting question...I think you will need to reconfigure staff in your Power Apps and Flows for sure...I have not tested this scenario, but I believe the swapping is going to do its job in SPO, but not in other Apps related. Anyway, best way to test this is by doing a test where you can emulate the swap and see how it works when there are dependencies on the site url

Thanks, i figured that was the case. The aspect that's bothering me the most is the custom powerapps forms on SharePoint lists. There doesn't seem to be a way to migrate these, the official line is to recreate them which i definitely don't want to be doing.
