Re: Unable to open attachments on powerapps mobile app.

Just wanting to check on one thing...Are you using "AbsoluteURI" or "AbsoluiteURL"...I use the "I" one, not an "L".

 

It is used when referring to attachments and it will open a separate tab that allows you to print or download it from there.

The error says the address is invalid. Check the address being linked to. Sounds like it is structured incorrectly or does not exist

What are you using to click on and show the attachment?

 

I typically use the Launch(AbsoluiteURI) that I put on an icon in the gallery. I use it from my Iphone and it works.

I use iphone too and using the absolute URL but appending somecode to make sure that the attachments are opened be default in client application.

Launch(Concatenate(Switch(Right(First(ThisItem.Attachments).DisplayName,4), "xlsx","ms-excel:ofe|u|", "docx", "ms-word:ofe|u|","pptx", "ms-powerpoint:ofe|u|", "")

Copy your code into the Text property of a label and remove the launch function. Then share the resulting URL with @rebeccas and myself
