Input a photo to Mobile Button

I want to input a photo by phone camera to Mobile Button of Microsoft Flow.


My scenario:

1. Post a issue with a photo by support staff.

  Support staff post a issue with a issue photo, add input's some texts/items, current location, with photo to SharePoint List.

2. Add a task status with a photo by sales staff.

  Sales staff add a task status with a task photo, add it's SharePoint List, notify the manager.


Mobile Button of Microsoft Flow is great featrue to improve staff working.

and Phone have nice camera.

If you want to send from PowerApp's Camera control (which is a dataUri) through Flow.


If you want to send from PowerApp's Media control (which is a binary blob) through Flow

@yoshihirok @Anonymous Please note that if you use Powerapps as a workaround to implement this feature, the main limitation I see is that in the context of Powerapps you cannot get the Flow result as explained here


Flow Buttons is a much faster-to-use concept than Powerapps itself; I guess this is the reason why there is a bunch of Buttons-related ideas requested like:

Hi @efialtes,


Yes, Flow Button is very much faster-to-use concept than PowrApps, and other developments.

Office workers can build Flow Buttons, instead ordering developers, learning development.


So, I hope to add some ideas to Flow Buttons, like input a Photo, input text by voice.

I saw this and was very excited.

Now I want more integration with Microsoft Launcher on my phone.


When I click a file in my Microsoft Launcher, I want to "share" to "Flow" and it'll filter to one of the buttons that can accept a File.

Not sure if what you are requesting is proposed already


Flow Buttons have a lot of potential, indeed!
