Save attachments to SharePoint list item

My main blocking point right now, is that I can not attach files to SharePoint list via PoweApps edit forms.

I can create app which can manage orders in SharePoint list for my company in few seconds, but we are forced to keep original email request in list. For this we are using InfoPath which works fine, but PowerApps should be much more suitable solution.


Also we are using same procedure but with excel forms, for that is also important to be able to EDIT excel/word... attachment directly on SharePoint. So what I would like to have in DisplayForm/edit form, when I click on excel file attached, it will open my excel, let me edit it and save it back directly to SharePoint like is possible now with forms on SharePoint.


Once I will have those 2 things in PowerApps, my live will be much more easier! Smiley Surprised


Would like to use PowerApps in our company, but right now... its not possible

Really would like the feature to attach a doc to a sharepoint list, even the alternative which is to add metadata to a file in a document directory doesn't seem possible in flow.


Please hurry!

Really need this functionality to make PowerApps useful. Currently it is not a good product for SharePoint without missing functionality like this.

For issue tracking it would be best to add the control to take picture and attch the picture it to the list item when you take it
