Hi @Perez ,

I would like to suggest you this YT Video from Shane.

I've used it and it simply works perfectly.


Hope this helps.

Hi @Ethan_R ,

thanks for your reply.

i tried the method explained in Shane's video, but didn’t succeeded.

in the video it is saved into a document library while I’m trying to save into a SharePoint list.

i made the following necessary changes:

  1. i used the add attachment activity rather than create file
  2. after the patch activity into the list i added this formula:


EasyUpload.Run(Last(AttachmentField.Attachments).Name,"" ,"",varBase64Only,Last(Sort('Amdocs Agency - Brief Process',ID,Ascending)).ID);



i couldn’t add it a s part of the patch as i need to get the ID of the created item.

any idea?

Hi @Perez 


If you want to add a attachment to a SP list item using Patch function directly, I afraid that there is no way to achieve  in PowerApps currently.


You can do it via Attachments field within the Edit form. Use a formula like below:




Patch('Brief Process',
 Defaults('Brief Process'),({
