  • Yes, SharePoint 2016 is compatible with InfoPath, although you may have to upgrade your InfoPath forms from InfoPath 2010 to InfoPath 2013.  However, InfoPath is a deprecated product which will be unsupported in another few years. There is also no development/bug fixes being worked on for InfoPath as a deprecated product. If you are going to upgrade now would be the time to start looking for an InfoPath alternative rather than spending money on supporting a "dead" product.

  • Thank you for your reply Paul,

    Is microsoft provided any other tool, I mean infopath replacement if they are going to stop infopath.

    Sunday, February 3, 2019 10:56 AM
  • The stated replacement is PowerApps. Its not exactly the same, but covers most of the use cases that people had for InfoPath. There are also several third party products that claim to fill that niche.

  • Thanks Paul,

    I have one more question. our current environment is in on-premises but we want to migrate to 2019 on-premises. Is SharePoint 2019 on-premises supports Power Apps and MS Flows (I heard its only for Cloud)

  • PowerApps and Flow are cloud based applications, but they can connect with and use content stored in on-premises installations. The one major downside is that starting Feb. 1 the Gateway that you use to access on-premises data requires at least a P1 license.  So although you can use it on-premises it will cost you more than using it in the cloud.
