Integrated Form not saving attachments

I have a power apps integrated form.  Attachments are allowed in the list and the Attachments data card is all default and locked.

 

Attachments are pdf files but are not being saved.   No error messages and I have removed the DataCard and re-added it.   Still not saving.

Size??  Perhaps the files are larger than the maximum setting?

Just a thought.

What is the maximum setting in SharePoint do you know?

Do you have any suggestions for a better way to handle these attachments?   It appears from the historical items in the old list that there will be many that can't be uploaded (historical list is SharePoint xml form library) to a standard SharePoint list.   

 

Maybe a document library with a meta data property that identifies which item it belongs to?

Well I would first confirm that limits are the factor by trying a small pdf file.  If that works, then limits are the issue.

SharePoint will take large files, but the PowerApps attachment control will only allow up to a certain size.

Then you might change the MaxAttachmentSize property on the attachment control to see if you can raise it to what you need.

 

Beyond that, yes a Doc library is a preference, but it comes with a cost...you cannot create a doc library Item from PowerApps, and need to enlist the help of a PowerAutomate flow to create it.  Once created, you can interact with it like any other list item.

So it seems that there is a mix of issues.   I have solved some of them by increasing the max file size.   In a couple cases they are not .pdf files, but emails that have file attachments on them.

Yes, that can get a little messy with emails with attachments as you have very little control over them.

In the past (just as an FYI), we implemented a system where emails were brought into the app to review and then attachments could be saved to the list (again it was a doc library and a flow was used).  This became a very flexible solution as the app allowed the user to pick the attachments as well as other files and even the email, but they all ended up as separate items in the library.  

Just a thought as well...
