How Does Site Inspector Template save image to one drive folder

I am mimicing the Site Inspector template for my app.  I have everything working as I want except when I go to save the image from the camera, it is saved within the Excel doc, not the folder.  I would like to have the images save to the folder as the Site Inspector template does.  I do not see anyplace within the template that tells the powerapp to save to the folder instead of the spresdsheet.

 

Any ideas?  Thanks in advanced for your help.

Re: How Does Site Inspector Template save image to one drive folder

The excel file should have a path to the image, rather than the image itself. There should be a folder created for you when the first image is saved. However if the excel is at the root of the OneDrive it can be hard to find.

 

Try using the search box on the left of OneDrive files and search for the name of the excel file, the folder should have the same name followed by "images" so they both should pop up.

 

Let me know if that helps.

That makes sense, however I do not see how to make the Powerapp save the image to the folder.  It seems to want to save it directly to the spreadsheet.

Does your spreadsheet look a little like this (without the tag column)?

If it does then the folder name is what follows ".\" and precedes the long GUID.

 

Let me know if this helps.

That is what I see when I use the template, however, when I try to use my own app, based on the template, the photo is saved into the spreadsheet, not the folder as a file.

 Is it possible I do not have something correct in my Excel sheet?

Ok, so there must be something in the Excel file that I was missing.  Once I copied the spreadsheet from the template over to my app's onedrive space, the camera images started saving as files.
