PowerApps attachment control, ability to select multiple files?

I want to upload multiple files at a time to sharepoint library using attachment control.

I know how to pass multiple files to Flow and use the flow to upload all the files to SharePoint library.

What I want to do is select multiple files from the browse window that appears when you click on attachment control. Is that possible, or is there any other work around?

Any help appreciated.

Yes, definitely possible. You can configure the maximum number of attachments on the control itself. If you want to select multiple files from the explorer window, just hold down shift and click

I have done that. The maximum number of attachments is 6 which was set by default.

Still I am not able able to select multiple files at time from the file browser window. Maximum number of attachments only allows me to add multiple files to attachment one by one.

So in the file selection window in the image, I can open only one file at a time.

I would like to be able to open multiple files at a time.

Hi @sg3 ,

Sorry, that is not possible - the attachment control as you have discovered is configured to deal with one file at a time.

Hi,

 

Is there any update on this? Is it supported now to select multiple files in the browser window with this control?

@3ation ,

No and nothing planned as far as I can see.

Does anybody know if a "User Voice" request has been made for this feature? If not, I'll add it. Thank you!
