Save attachments to SharePoint list item



My main blocking point right now, is that I can not attach files to SharePoint list via PoweApps edit forms.

I can create app which can manage orders in SharePoint list for my company in few seconds, but we are forced to keep original email request in list. For this we are using InfoPath which works fine, but PowerApps should be much more suitable solution.


Also we are using same procedure but with excel forms, for that is also important to be able to EDIT excel/word... attachment directly on SharePoint. So what I would like to have in DisplayForm/edit form, when I click on excel file attached, it will open my excel, let me edit it and save it back directly to SharePoint like is possible now with forms on SharePoint.


Once I will have those 2 things in PowerApps, my live will be much more easier! Smiley Surprised


Would like to use PowerApps in our company, but right now... its not possible

For all people information the sharepoint team working on it to. Infact if you tray on sharepoint 2013_16 to use custom table with features enable you cancreate powerapps form and you can see the attachment too but you can't upload.
I'm shure the MS Powerapps team rispect the relise date in february 2018.

Hey everyone, we have completed the work and it is in the process of being released.  Unfortunately, due to the mechanics of that process, most users will not be seeing attachments feature show up for them until early March.

Super User

That is good news.  What do we need to look for that will inform us that it is available?

Most eagerly awaiting this feature as well!


On a mildly related note, does anyone have a clear answer on whether CDS supports file/blob attachments?  If so, how does one do so! I can't seem to find a straight answer!


If so, Would be great if this new attachment function supported CDS as well 🙂
