Submit captured image to SharePoint List

I think it would be great to make photos captured in the PowerApp Camera control be submitted to SharePoint List.


Status: Started

We have started working on this, but this is complex as by default SPO lists do not have a concept of images stored in them. This is the top item on our SharePoint connector team and we are actively working on it.


Sadly, don't have a timeline due to the complexity of the problem.

Step 1 Create a Flow with an Powerapp Trigger like so:

Step 2 customize your newly created Flow using the "dataUriToBinary(triggerBody()['Compose_Inputs'])" snippet

Step 3 save and connect your Flow to a PowerApp Button

This was raised in 2016 and the status is Started.

What is the update and is it going to get finished and when.

What is the legendary SharePoint Connector team working on if it takes 4 years to get something through?

Does this also include the concept of saving a Word Template in Dynamics 365 CE to SharePoint rather than downloading it to your Downloads folder?

Hey Microsoft!!!


What's up with this request?  Its being worked on for over 4 years!!


We need to be able to save images captured by the camera control as an attachment to the list item being created at the time we are taking the pic.

I upvoted this as it is very important for us. It also could be an activate option of the "attachments" control form, where, in addition to "Add a file" a cool idea whould be to have a "Add from Camera" or "Add from clipboard" to the control. 

That would solve a lot of my problems.
