Re: PowerApps on a Document Library?

Hi All,

Thanks for the responses.  I think we all know that you can start from scratch with PowerApps and access libraries and lists.  I've done that, as well.  What this post was focusing in is that you can tailor the view of a list using PowerApps very easily, starting out with a default that you can improve on.  You can't do that with a document library and that's what we're asking for.

Re: PowerApps on a Document Library?

Coincidentally, I saw today a SharePoint Dev Community SIG presentation that says PowerApp customization of DocLib forms is coming this year!

Re: PowerApps on a Document Library?

Is there some kind of setting that needs to be changed on my tenant admin to enable connection to doc libraries?

this article says it available - https://www.schaeflein.net/connect-to-sharepoint-document-library-from-powerapps/

@ManjulaPraveen

I'm able to connect to and view a Document Library but what I'd like (and I think what the OP would also like) is the ability to create an edit form in PA for that doc library like you can for an SP list.

Right now you are stuck having to do some pretty crazy stuff.

Re: PowerApps on a Document Library?

When is this happening??? I just got my flow to work looks clean except the edit form / new form. At the very least we should be allowed to use infopath is there any kind of workaround?

JSON format the id column of the doc library to open a Canvas PowerApp with the form. Not pretty but it works to add logic to the document library form.
