Need to add Attachment to a PATCH to a SharePoint List

I have created an app where I want to patch an attachment field to a SharePoint List, but the attachments field is not listed as a field in my SharePoint list per powerapps notification. I know I can attach files using the edit form feature, but all of the other fields in my app are not within a form. Help! 🙂

Hi @Anonymous,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to add a attachment to a SP list item using Patch function?

 

If you want to add a attachment to a SP list item using Patch function directly, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

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

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to only add the Attachments field within the Edit form. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:3.JPG

Set the OnSelect property of the "Submit" button to following formula:

Patch(
'20180921_case2', /* <-- My SP List */
Defaults('20180921_case2'),
{Title:"PowerApps3",TaskName:"Task3",NoOpportunity:true,NoOpp_PostSales_x0020_:true},
EditForm1.Updates
)

On your side, you should type following formula:

Patch(
'YourSPList',
Defaults('YourSPList'),
{
Column1:TextInput1.Text,
Column2:TextInput2.Text,
Column3:TextInput3.Text,
...,
ColumnN:TextInputN.Text
},
EditForm1.Updates
)

Note: The Editform1 represents the Edit form control within your app, which only display the Attachments field. 

Please also check and see if the following thread would help in your scenario:

Here's how I got accomplished this after I could not get @v-xida-msft 's method to work.

Scenario:

  • Two forms, one on each of two screens
  • MainForm: All the DataCards except Attachments
  • ImageForm: Single DataCard, only the Attachments DataCard
  • User fills in the MainForm, at any time they can click a Camera Icon which navigates them to the CameraScreen. They can Take/Upload photos using the ImageForm
  • When complete, the Submit button lights up
  • OnSelect of the Submit button:
    • Patch(SharepointList,
        LookUp(SharepointList, eventId = varEventId),
          frmMainForm.Updates,
          frmAttachments.Updates
      )

Hope this helps!

Hi @v-xida-msft ,

Has this functionality changed since you posted this solution? I cannot get a single DataCard-Form to Patch into an existing SP record. 

Example:

Single DataCard Form with Attachments:

image.png

Form: Data Source

MY_SP_LIST

DataCard: Update

attachmentControl.Attachments

Save Button: OnSelect 

Patch(
    LookUp(MY_SP_LIST, eventGUID = varEventGUID),
    {
        Attachments: attachmentControl.Attachments
    }
);
ViewForm(frmEdit)

Results: The form switches to ViewMode and thats it, no Patch back to DataSource. 
Any ideas?

Thank you!

Anyone? I cannot get PowerApps to Patch attachments INTO an existing record.
