Can't view attachment after upload anymore

Hello,

 

My users complain that they can't view attachments anymore after they uploaded them (in an attachment control in a New form). They used to upload an attachment and before submitting the form check the contents by clicking on the attachment in the control (Document Case X.txt in the picture). 
There was a change in December which also introduced the "Unsaved" text after the upload. The users tell me this change broke the functionality. The check to see if they uploaded the right attachment is an important step to garantee a swift proces.

Please insert this functionality back in the attachment control.

Re: Can't view attachment after upload anymore

Hi @SomeOne2,

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have also made a test, the issue is confirmed on my side.

I afraid that the Preview/Download functionality in Attachments control in New form has been removed in PowerApps (due to recent update).

If you would like this feature to be added in Attachments control, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Best regards,

Kris

OK Kris,

 

Thanks for your confirmation. Of course I rather would have seen that the functionality is restored, after all it was available previously, but I will submit it as an idea.

Kind regards

Re: Can't view attachment after upload anymore

Has this been brought back? I'm new to PowerApps and I'm not able to view attachments that have been submitted. The screenshot attached shows what appears if we click an attachment but nothing to view it.

Indeed Mateodom18 it seems the issue has come back after first being resolved many months ago.  We also can't view our uploaded files anymore before submitting the form.
