Save captured images in SharePoint list using PowerApps

Hello,

 

I want to store multiple images captured from camera control to sharepoint list (not to Documents) in a single item(row). It should not create multiple files for multiple images separately, rather it should store images as form data in a single item.

 

Is there any way to do this?

If yes, then please show me how to it.

 

Thank You.

Re: Save captured images in SharePoint list using PowerApps

Hi @ParimalPatil,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Where do you store the captured images in your SP list? Store them as attachments of a SP list item?

If you want to upload the images into your SP list item as attachments, I think the Attachments control would be a better choice for you than Camera control.

More details about uploading images using Attachments control, please check the following blog:

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/add-attachments-to-sharepoint-lists/

 

If you want to upload the images captured via Camera control into your SP list item, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to pass the captured pictures (using Camera control) to a flow, then use the flow to create an attachments to corresponding SP list item. Please check and see if the following blog would help in your scenario:3.JPG

Hello @ParimalPatil,

Have you considered using Attachments control? It would allow you to store images as record attachments in SharePoint. Each record from the SharePoint list would have a separate list of attached images.

@v-xida-msft , do you have a method for saving multiple PowerApps images (in a collection) to a Sharepoint Library?

Thank you
