Powerapps Reponse in Flow for File

Hi, 

I just noticed that in Flow there is a Powerapps Response action. The response options are file, email, text.  Our plan is to retrieve the a file from Box to allow our users to download the file. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do in Powerapps with the file once its retrieved from the Flow? I can add it to a collection but then I cant download it.

Re: Powerapps Reponse in Flow for File

You could use the download function to download the file:

For more information about the function, please check:

Download, launch, and Param functions in PowerApps

Quoted:

"

Download( Address )

  • Address - Required. The address of a web resource to download.

"

To make the download work, a web address is required, with access available for the App users.

 

Regards,

Michael

Hello nbarsley1,

Could you please explain how you use the Powerapps Response action in order to have a file in a Collection?
Or share a link from documentation, if you have any?

Re: Powerapps Reponse in Flow for File

Hi, 

I created a simple flow (attached, testgetfile) that from a powerapp button, pulls a file from box and then uses power apps response to send the file to powerapps. 

onselect:  ClearCollect(collect_newfile,testgetfile.Run())

 

but once the file is in a collection, I cant seem to download it with download or launch. Both are expecting a url.

Ya, I am having the same issue. I can get the BLOB type stored in a varrible, but I can't do anything with it.
