Change filename of a saved camera image in Onedrive (excel)

I'm making an app based on the MS example: "Site Inspection".

 

This example app uses OneDrive and:
Creates a file data.xls

Creates a folder data_images

Creates multiple images (1-100.jpg, 1-101.jpg)

 

When i add a 2 new photos using the app it creates 2 new rows in excel and add the images in the data_images folder.

Excel:

image.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see the filename look like a GUID. I Want it to be 6-100 and 6-101 like the previous ones.

 

Is this possible to do? (looks like the example data is manual edited?)

 

This question has been asked before (see bottum of the page, but the original question is solved:
Link

 

A microsoft blog almost has an answere (the call an API with a function whre FileName is added)

Blog

 

Collect(MyPictures, {URL:ImageUploadAPI.UploadImage(Camera1.Photo, {fileName: TextInput1.Text}).FileURL, Name:TextInput1.Text, Time:Now()})

Re: Change filename of a saved camera image in Onedrive (excel)

Hi @eXir,

 

Currently I can't find a way to change the image name saved by the camera control within PowerApps, the image name should be saved automatically.

And yes, here I suggest to change the name manually, for both the Excel data and the Image in the image folder.

Besides, I think it is a good idea for the camera control to have a property to rename the image saved.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: Change filename of a saved camera image in Onedrive (excel)

Hi @eXir,

 

It should work.

in addition to the Excel data, you should notice that there is an image folder generated together, if you would like to modify the image name under the Excel table, then please make sure the image saved into the Image folder also changes to the corresponding name.

 

The path under the Excel table should be a relative path for PowerApps to find the image saved, if the value (or saying the image name ) matches, then PowerApps should work.

Michael

Re: Change filename of a saved camera image in Onedrive (excel)

Hi @v-micsh-msft

 

Thanks for the reply. 
The app is working fine, excel and the folder are updated every time. 


What i want is to modify the file name or give some extra information in the image file.

 

From the camera screen you can find both these OnSelect were the image is created with.

Photo :Camera1.Photo
Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;1))

 

If(CountRows(CameraPhotos) <=7 ;Collect(CameraPhotos; {Note:"";Photo :Camera1.Photo; PhotoId :CountRows(CameraPhotos)}))
If(NewRecord;Navigate(NewInspectionScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade);
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=1;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;1)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;1)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=2;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;2)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;2)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=3;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;3)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;3)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=4;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;4)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;4)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=5;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;5)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;5)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=6;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;6)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;6)).Note)})}));;
If(CountRows(CameraPhotos)>=7;UpdateContext({AddPhoto:Patch(SitePhotos;Defaults(SitePhotos);{PhotoId:Max(SitePhotos;PhotoId)+1;Photo:Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;7)).Photo;ID:Gallery3.Selected.ID;Note:Text(Last(FirstN(CameraPhotos;7)).Note)})}));;
Navigate(EditInspectionScreen;ScreenTransition.Fade);;Clear(CameraPhotos))

 

Is there a way to change the filename from powerapps?
Or are you suggesting to change it manually?
