PowerAPPs Attachments don't work properly

I have a PowerAPP based on a Sharepoint List with an attachment field. My APP has three screens:

  • the list screen; where I can choose a single item so opening
  • the browse screen. I can select the Edit button and so I open
  • the edit screen where, in the data form, I can add an attachment.

When I push the button "Done" I submit the form and the screen closes itself, coming back properly to the browse screen.  (With your suggestion) now in the Browse screen the attachment appears (and into the sharepoint list you can find it).

But if I come back to the Edit Screen the attachment doesn't appear. I have to come back to the list screen, chose an other item then come back again to the previous one and now I can find into the Edit Screen.

After this second action the attachment is finally viewed also into the Browse screen.

Is this a bug that I can solve in some way? Thank you

Re: PowerAPPs Attachments don't work properly

Hi @ailedac ,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, I also made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.


Please make sure the Item property of the Edit form is set to following formula:

Gallery1.Selected     /* <-- Gallery1 represents the Gallery in your List screen */


In addition, please also consider take a try with the following workaround:

1. set the OnSelect property of the Gallery or the ">" icon (Navigate icon, click it to navigate from List screen to Browse screen) within the Gallery in your List screen to following:

Set(CurrentItem, Gallery1.Selected);   /* <-- Gallery1 represents the Gallery control in your List Screen */
Navigate(BrowseScreen, ScreenTransition.None)

2. Set the Item property of the Display form in your Browse Screen to following:


set the OnSelect property of the "Edit" icon within your Browse screen to following:

Navigate(EditScreen, ScreenTransition.None)

3. Within your Edit screen, set the Item property of the Edit form (EditForm1) to following:


Please consider take a try with above solution, then check if the issue is solved.
