PowerApps Attachments to SharePoint lists size limit

Currently there is a limitation of uploading a file attachment size to max of 10 MB. SInce SPO can accept upto 250 MB per file in a list item, it makes sense to increase the attachment size in PowerApps to 250MB.

Status: Started

We are increasing the upload limit to 100MB but the planned October release date is in jeopardy.  Still aiming for this year, I will update the thread.

@FilipKThank you for telling us what's going on. Seriously I always appreciate the communication and even moreso with the specific concerns you, the developers, are trying to address in solving this problem. Understanding that the issue isnt some arbitrary limit that could just be increased makes waiting more tolerable.

@DevelopAlways"You have to do things like add a timer that refreshes the data source every few seconds to actually get it to work."

Glad to see I'm not the only one using this atrocious hack lol

What about the hack of using a collection for a single record because storing and patching a record in a local variable causes coercion problems that you can't even debug! Works fine one day and then the next you get all these red errors for all controls using the local record with the dreaded "the types specified are not compatible with the types specified elsewhere"" message. So you have to use 'First(collection)' everywhere! WTF?

Hey everyone, I finally have some good news.  We are in the process of increasing the hardcoded limit of max attachment size to 100MB.  We are going to release this as a preview feature (you have to enable it first under File | App settings | Advanced Settigns | Preview features) as you'll need to test your use cases accross platforms and devices used with your apps.

 

Should be in production by September.

Awesome!

This is great, @FilipK!

 

Can we get an estimate on when this will be enabled for preview? I don't see it there currently.

 

Thanks again for the timely updates!!

@FilipKcan you, or anyone else, please confirm if the 100MB size limit was rolled out as a preview feature or if this is still in the planning as we can't see it in our environment? Also is it still planned to go into production this month (Sept 2019)? Thank you!

Is anyone else getting the impression PowerApps just isn't a viable development tool?   I'm getting the impression it is only good for photo sharing. 

 

The head of IT here was saying it can't do anything.  Of course he is an oracle guy, so take that for what it is worth.  My team is pushing for javascript as an infopath replacement.  I'd really like a Microsoft product like Infopath, but since it is deprecated, I need to find something else to develop apps.  I was hoping Powerapps was it, but it just doesn't seem to be it.

That's a loaded question and the last time I posted a response, the community administrator deleted it 🙂
