Is there a way for a user of a PowerApps application to extract / download an media (e.g. Picture) to his mobile device or to his laptop's hardisk storage ?
I have an app quite similar to the site Inspection application . But additionally, users require that the pictures collected via the application be extractable/downloadable to a local storage for further analysis.
You will need to use the Launch https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-param Command to do this, it will open the image, then the user will need to push on the image and tap download to device.
You have two ways to do this:
I am trying to download an image using your first suggestion but have had no luck getting it to work so far. Can you please help with this? I am getting the error seen in the screenshot below every time I click the Launch button I created.
My button has the following "Launch" function: Launch("https://enkaytech.crm.dynamics.com/image/download.aspx?attribute=image&entity=receiptschild&id=" & ThisItem.PrimaryId)
My entity is called "'Receipts Child'", and my image field is called "Image". I am also using the old CDS.
It looks like you have two items that need to be updated, one is the entity name, you will need to use the logical entity name like new_receiptschild instead of just receiptschild and the id should be something like new_receiptschildid. Here is some additional info on how it works: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn817886.aspx
I tried your suggestion of using the logical entity name but am still getting the same error. Do I need a Dynamics CRM subscription in order for this to work?
