What’s more frightening than ghosts and witches in October? It’s having InfoPath lurking around your SharePoint Online environment and feeling the impending doom of knowing that Microsoft will pull the plug on InfoPath in SharePoint Online. When is anybody’s guess. Will you be ready?
While InfoPath will be supported in SharePoint On-Prem until 2026, there is no guarantee that it will not be retired from SharePoint Online well before that date. Microsoft does not recommend using InfoPath in SharePoint Online, yet thousands of InfoPath form solutions remain active in enterprise organizations. Many of these solutions are mission-critical and will take considerable time and resources to migrate them to the Power Platform, Microsoft’s recommended replacement for InfoPath. The time to start planning your InfoPath replacement efforts is now.
