Re: How do i add attachments in a Model Driven App?

Hi @v-xida-msft !

 

Look at this!

 

A little workaround but it works fine 🙂 

 

After i upload i save the document in a sharepoint library!

Where i also create a file when the bpf is finished with a pdf that archives the order.

 

Perfectly!

Thanks for your time!

Re: How do i add attachments in a Model Driven App?

HI @Softbear ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to add a "Attachment upload" option within the Entity form of your Model-Driven app?

 

If you want to add a "Attachment upload" option within the Entity form of your Model-Driven app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, within PowerApps, the "Attachments upload" option/functionality has not been supported within Model-Driven app.

 

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

Re: How do i add attachments in a Model Driven App?

Hello @v-xida-msft !

Well, that's not good at all...

 

I'm using Common Data Service as data storage at this moment. And a Business Process Flow to drive the whole process.  I can see there is an entity called "Attachments", shouldn't i be able to use it in some way?

 

So the app is like:

For every new instance, you create a special order that is rolling through a couple of stakeholders, so for example when the BPF comes to Construction Manager, he want to be able to upload some drawings that are related to that Special Order.

 

Do you see my problem?

 

Thanks for helping!

Hi @Softbear ,

I have made a test on my side, I afraid that the "Attachment" Entity could not achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.
