The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

I've heard some people saying Microsoft is not going to support Access Apps for SharePoint in the future. The focus in on PowerApps now.
Does anyone have more information on this? Is it worth putting time into developing Access Web Apps?
Thanks!

Re: The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

Unfortunately, the rumors are true. I beleive by mid 2018 MS will no longer support web Access. However, if you never upgrade Access or Sharepoint then you should be good for a little while.

I myself do not use the publish/web feature and only use SP as a BE.

Re: The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

Guess I'd better get familiar with PowerApps then. If anyone knows of a good starting point for learning PowerApps, I'd appreciate it.

Not sure that is the full answer, the method of accessing ms hosted sharepoint from web apps will be turned off in April 2018 - see para 3 of this link

However if you have sharepoint on your own servers, you should be OK for a while longer - see para 5 of the above link

Re: The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

Guess it depends on what you are doing but Powerapps do not have a good reputation with web app developers having to migrate. Implication being there are lots of things you can't do in powerapps which you could do in webapps.

If you are just starting out, decide what it is you are doing, then look for the most appropriate solution for back end and front end.

Good point, such as the case with my organization. I forget that others are not in the same boat...

Re: The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

Hi,
I would like to migrate my AWA to a 'new' Azure server.
But when migrating via Access desktop, I lost all my relationships (lookups). Is this normal? Or do I need to migrate to Sharepoint lists? I am not really a fan, but I have been reading that relationships will remain this way.

Thanks for your help!

Re: The future of Access Apps for SharePoint

@Thomas, you have hijacked an old thread and are unlikely to get any responses, recommend you start a new thread.

Although I am aware of sharepoint and AWA's I do not use them so cannot help with your question. I also don't understand what you mean by 'relationships (lookups)', they are completely unrelated, so you might want to expand on that in your new thread.

I can say you only have a few more days to complete your migration before the AWA ceases to work (unless you have sharepoint on your own servers, i.e. not a server hosted by Microsoft)
