Support for Access Web Apps in SharePoint Online Going Away
Q: (from Megan)
Is there a good Microsoft resource with more information on the removal of Access Services from SharePoint Online? My understanding is that no new Access apps can be created, but I’m trying to confirm whether or not my client that houses their tables in SharePoint Online and accesses them via Access 2016 is also going to need to find another solution.
I hadn’t seen this announcement yet:
But reading through the announcement and following comments, I found the following references:
- We have also published guidance on how to port your custom web app to PowerApps here
- whitepaper by Access MVPs Ben Clothier and @Andy Tabisz: Introduction to Microsoft PowerApps for Access web apps developers
Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I’ll have to see if my local Access User Group is aware of this change.
