i want to build an App that makes it possible to upload varies data (pdfs, videos, pictures, xlsx, wordx etc.) to a SharePoint List or a Document Library.
I have the following problems:
- I'm not able to upload a Video via iPhone/iOS as an List item attachment (for Android it works)
- I'm not able to upload a file bigger than 100MB (Which is a pain in the a** because we have lots of videos)
- I'm not able to Upload a file directly into a library, which i worked around with a flow that copies the new attachments of the list item directly into the library (any better solution for this??)
As my company has to do a lot of video and photo documentation it would be lovely to build a simple media upload app, but with the before named restrictions i could not find a good way...:-(
Thanks for your reply!!
It doesn't have to be in SharePoint, but if I understood it correctly, the maximum file size is also limited to 128 MB in CDS.
Or have I understood it wrong? Since we have lots of Videos, which are larger than 128MB this could be a problem..
Thank you for your detailed answer. I think I've got the issue...
So we'll have to decide on a different tool first, which makes me pretty sad, since we already use PowerApps for time tracking, fleet management, and parts management...
It would be great to integrate this feature into PowerApps because we already have another use case for it:
Since our company is in the construction industry, we have an industry solution for our equipment management that is quite rigid and has no interfaces to other systems. We want to change that by building such a tool with PowerApps. In this tool too, the ability to carry out photo and video documentation would be essential. Photos, especially to document the condition of a tool, and videos for introductory videos, since we have some complicated machines that require some advanced knowledge.
Even though we are only a small company with about 90 employees, we and certainly other members of the community would be very happy about the possibility of a more extensive collection and storage of photo and video material.
Kind regards 🙂
