Re: Add attachment from timeline section on custom entity from PowerApps Portals

Hi @Catherin ,

 

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to add an "Attachment upload" option within the Entity form of your Model-Driven app?

 

If you want to add a "Attachment upload" option within the Entity form of your Model-Driven app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, within PowerApps, the "Attachments upload" option/functionality has not been supported within Model-Driven app.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Regards,

Re: Add attachment from timeline section on custom entity from PowerApps Portals

@v-monli-msft Attachment upload IS supported in portals.

@Catherin You might be missing few steps to enable notes.

 

You should check below things:

1. In entity form settings, have you enabled the attachment options?

Refer to image A

 

2. In the actual form, have you set the activities default tab as notes?

Go to form designer -> Switch to classic -> Notes control properties -> In web client properties, set default tab as notes

[refer to image B]

 

3. Setup the entity form metadata for notes.

You can find the link here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/portals/configure-notes

[The screenshots are of legacy webclient but it is same for UCI aka model driven app as well]

You can also refer to Image C attached

 

4. Now, most important step, have you provided appropriate permission to the webrole on notes entity?

For eg. If you want to enable attachment to the authenticated users, create an entity permission record, choose entity as notes, set the appropriate permissions here. That is referred in documentation above.

 

Do let me know if you have any more questions or does it solve the problem for you.

I followed all the instructions above, but my attachment's control still isn't showing. It just says "There are no notes to display"

Hi there,

 

I am having the exact same problem, see my posting here>

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/Auto-generated-Note-not-showing-in-Power-App...

 

Notes are not showing on the portal custom entity page when created automatically by Microsoft Power Automate. 

 

Have you found a solution?

 

Kind regards,

Patrick

I found the solution. You have to insert

 

*WEB*

 

in the Description field of the Note entity when creating the Notes record via Power Automate.

When *WEB* is written to this field, the attachment is shown in the Power Apps Portal view.
