I'm trying to build an app where I wish to send an email with attachments using the "Email" table in Dataverse.
In the next step, I want to be able to view all those attachments within PowerApps but it's giving me the below error:
I checked a few blogs where it said that the attachment files are usually linked and stored in "Notes" table. So I built a flow where I tried to send the content of those attachments in a new row in the "Notes" table. but this is also giving me errors.
Can anyone please suggest a work around or how I will be able to achieve this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If the base64 does not work please try using below and pass it to the document
okay, base64 solved the issue, now how do i access these files from powerapps? since i'm using the Email table. how do I link the attachments with a particular record and view it on PowerApps?
To link notes with specific record you need to set the Regarding field to your parent record as below
/parentrecordschemanameinplural/Guid of parent record
Is your parent record the email entity?
If yes then you need to use the method in the below article to add the attachment not through the notes.
So you need to follow below steps described in this blog post:
In my case,
1. I'm sending the email from PowerApps using the Email table with attachments.
2. I want to be able to see those attachments in PowerApps.
how do you suggest we implement it step-by-step? or using which entity at which step.
