Power Apps portal: Browse and upload a file from desktop and send it to Dy

Power Apps Portal: Is it possible to add an upload functionality to upload an excel file from desktop into the power apps portal.


All I see is components such as forms, lists, etc.

Hi @Jans ,

Do you want to upload a file from Desktop to your PowerApps Portal through an Component?


If you want to upload a file from Desktop to your PowerApps Portal through an Component, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

Currently, the Upload functionality component is not supported in PowerApps Portal. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please consider submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

I used the forms with attachments to upload a file in power apps portal. Now that I am able to upload files, I would like to be able to display the excel attachment as an Editable Grid once the file is uploaded. Is this achievable and what it the most efficient way to achieve this?

Hi Jans,


Sounds like an opportunity for sharepoint integration. 🙂 Although, user still won't be able to edit inline.

I don't think that something like this is supported for upload in CDS or Blob storage.

You can achieve this by using attachment control. There is a good video tutorial from @RezaDorrani : 


Please have a look.
