Newbie here, need to capture photo and populate image form field

I am a new to PowerApps and my first project is to create a visitor registration app for our reception desk. I have read various articles regarding Visitor Registration and they have proved very helpful. I am at a point now where I need to capture a picture of our visitor and attach the collected image to the image form field. I am at a loss. Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated!


Thanks,

Brian

Hi @Anonymous,

 

To capture pictures in powerapps, you could use the camera control. For your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/controls/control-camera

 

Then decide if it could be updated to your data source using Patch function, depending on what your data source is.

Thank you for your response. Here is a quick breakdown of my screen setup and flow:

 

Screen1 = Form1 - EditForm (Collecting Name, Phone Number, Company, DateTime); Next button submits Form1 and the List is updated with the captured information.

 

Screen2 = Camera captures photo to collection called "VisitorPhotos", Gallery contains image preview from the image in the collection. I need the image from the collection to update the most last ID in the list (most recent ID) with the photo just captured.

 

I hope this makes sense and someone can assist!

 

Thanks!!!

Hi @Anonymous,

 

What is the data source that you are trying to update? So far, we do not support to upload image from powerapps to sharepoint, following below idea thread:
