Trigger activity by dropping file on app (PC)

I would like to execute some activity on a file by dropping it on my app.  Is this possible?  I suspect not, but it would be very helpful for some usages of my app.  I really do not want my users to open up the raw sharepoint document library, and I would like to stay with in my powerapp.  Of course, I would only need this on the PC side.  Drag/drop onto my screen, and then act on the file.

Re: Trigger activity by dropping file on app (PC)

Hi @martinav,


Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to trigger some activity when dropping file from your app/PC?


If you want to trigger some activity when dropping file from your app/PC, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
