I am currently trying to utilize the File entity within my entity form. However I am getting the below message.  Can anyone advise on why I receive this message. Also my field is not visible on my PowerApps Portal. Thank you for your help.

Hi @Virgo14 ,


File and Image field types are not supported by the Power Apps Portal yet. Regarding the message that you see - as the message says you need to create a record first and then upload files.

If you find this post helpful consider marking it as a solution to help others find it.

Ok thank you. but what can be done to enable file upload in powerapps Portals.

Hi @Virgo14


You can use notes/activities in entity records. You should add notes/activities section/tab in your form.


For portal, this is the only option to attach doc/file.
