PowerApps file size limits when uploading to Sharepoint/Blob etc.

Business Requirement: To upload files as submission for approvals and other business engagements from Power Apps to backend repositories like Sharepoint and/or Azure Blob  etc. File size can range from 50 MB to 5 GB.

 

Limitation: Power Apps allows only uploads of file sizes upto 50 MB. Also there is 1 minute timeout when uploading files, so on large file sizes or poorer network the operation times out.

 

Need: Please increase the file size upload limit to at least 1 GB and remove the timeout completely if possible else give a larger timeout window say around 5 mins to 8 mins or so.

 

It would be great if you could take this up asap; it can open a wider range of applications for PowerApps and enables businesses even more.

 

Thanks,

Kishore Chakravarty(Power Platform Developer).

If files are stored to the Azure Blob through use of the File data type you are able to have a 130MB file at this time.

50MB for modern media is very low. Please increase.

50 MB is a huge restriction. Please increase

Please increase upload and download to at least 1GB otherwise what you have on offer is not really useable for very many scenarios

Hard to believe in 2022, that file size is limited to 50mb. I had to direct our Medical Education team to another technology, as they wanted a Physician portal where they could show case clinical footage.

I am tired of hearing things such as "If files are stored to the Azure Blob through use of the File data type you are able to have a 130MB file at this time."

 

We know this. But there are certain situations or limitations that do not always allow for us to use your desired method. If you want to be as robust as you claim you need to provide for a variety of scenarios and stop trying to force everything to your preferred method.

Please increase the file size limit. We need to handle files larger than 50 MB. We need to upload zip files consisting of pictures, audio files, videos etc.

This really needs to updated. Having such a limit of 50mb and 1 min timeout, is really bad for business use cases which makes Powerapps look ineffective as a business tool, in comparison to other programs involving uploading.
