I have recently started using powerapps and need to develop a few apps for my organization and am stuck. I can navigate and create different screens to make it look great, but connecting and trying to attach a file for user end download is kicking my butt. Need a good nudge on where to go next. Kind find the correct wat to get this file attached for my clients.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@DanielWilliams I would recommend YouTube and the PowerApps video gallery. These are great resources for understanding the basics and getting started. Also, you might find it helpful to look at template apps that have some of the features you are wishing to implement into your app. You can copy the features into your app and modify accordingly. Lastly, it's always helpful, when reaching out to the community, to attach screen shots of your app with the formulas. Good luck and happy powerapping!
Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?
Which data source do you use within your app? A SP list?
Currently, within PowerApps, if you want the end users to be able to upload a document to data source, I think the Attachments control could achieve your needs. But the Attachments control could not supported within SP list and Common Data Service currently.
More details about the uploading attachments to SP list using Attachments control, please check the following blog:
