PDF View from Shared OneDrive link

Hello,

 

I am making an app that will allow users to view a PDF of their schedule. I currently have the PDF in my OneDrive and have tried using the "Anyone with the link can edit" link in the PDF Viewer control in PowerApps.

When I attempt to view the PDF from the App the only this I see is "Couldn't open PDF file". This link should let anyone view the PDF, so why is my PowerApp not able to view this?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am no expert in PowerApps but i do know that in order to view a PDF with the PDF viewer control, you must first create a flow to handle the request from PowerApps. 

1) did you write a flow? 2) if so, can you post a screenshot of it?

if you are not familar with the process below is a youtube i used to view PDFs in PowerApps.

I will put the PDF into a SharePoint site like in this tutorial and see if it works.

 

Thanks!
