Open Office Documents

I am seeing what looks like this is possible, but cannot nail down the expression to make it work. I want to be able to use my document library from within PowerApps to browse and the open the file. The files will include all MS files and PDF's. I can already get the library as a data source, I just cannot open the file.


Ideally I would like to get to the file properties which I think I can do already, but then lauch the file from there.

Re: Open Office Documents

Hi @msmith,


Thanks for the feedback.

Please consider vote up the following idea:

Let Powerapps connect to a Document Library


The current status that I know is that PowerApps is currently available to get teh Library properties, but for the File View/Upload, which is not supported at the current time.

The Team is currently working on this to make it available (Idea status changed to Started). Please consider vote up the idea above, and share your comments if possible.
