How to upload files as (.pdf, .docx, .xlsx, etc) in a Sharepoint document library?

Hi!

Is possible to upload files to a document library in Sharepoint? ... I have seen that only attachments can be upload in a list, but not in the libraries ... I saw that is posted as an idea in https://powerusers.microsoft.com/ t5/ PowerApps-Ideas / Attach-a-file-to-form / idi-p / 20596
but I don't see that it is solved to load files like pdf, docx
Does anyone know how to do it?.
 
thanks!

Hi @Felipemc,

 

Uploading files directly to SharePoint library is not available within PowerApps currently.

The current approach is working with SharePoint library as the SharePoint lists, and upload files through the attachment control:

Attachment control in PowerApps

 

There is a workaorund to upload list attachments added by PowerApps to SharePoint library through Microsoft Flow, see:

Moving PowerApps Attachments to a Document Library
