Help needed- Trouble with names for listed photos.

I'm having trouble naming my photos when exporting from PowerApps to SharePoint. I made a working flow that uploads the photo to SP, but they overwrite each other as they have the same file name. I cannot find anything online that works for me, so if you have a solution for my problem, please let me know 🙂

See attached photos of my problem.

Edit: I am new to PowerApps and Flows, and I would therefore really appreciate it if you could explain it as simple as possible.

Re: Help needed- Trouble with names for listed photos.

Hi @CodeNoob ,

 

Do you want to save Photoes without duplicate name?

You can try the following workaround,I test as next:

Button_takephoto.OnSelect:

Collect(PhotoList,{Photo:UploadedImage1.Image,FileName:Concatenate("File",Text(Today(),"[$-en-US]dd/mm/yyyy"),Text(CountRows(PhotoList)),".jpg")})        (PhotoList is my collection name and you can change it to your collection name on your side,of course you can use other time function to disinguish for example:Now())

Hope this could be helpful.

 

Best Regards.
