Re: Where is Attachments Control?

Hi @Sam44 ,

Could you please share a bit more the data source you used within your app? Is it a SP list?

 

Currently, Attachments control is only available within SP list data source and Common Data Service (CDS), you could not use it with other data sources. The Attachments control only work inside a Form, you could not use it separately.

Please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-attachments#accessibil...

If you use SP list data source within your app, and want to enable Attachments control in your Edit form, please check the following screenshot:2.JPG

 

In addition, the Attachments control has been removed from the Insert-> Controls menu within PowerApps Studio for web currently.

If you would like this control to be re-added into the Insert-> Controls menu within PowerApps Studio for web, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Re: Where is Attachments Control?

@v-xida-msft 

Thanks for the clarification about attachment control.

Though we can only upload, delete attachments within a form control from the past, still Insert-Control-Attachments control has helped us to show attached file list as well as in a case we don't want to use "Form"....

 

Also document you pointed out https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-attachments#accessibil... was not mentioning separeted "Attachment control" we all had was gone. We would be appreciated if you update document clearly mentioning independent control has been gone since we have used separated attachment control.
