Upload a picture captured through PowerApp to a sharepoint online document library

Using powerapp in mobile phone, I can capture photos with the camera, but I can't upload to a document library in SharePoint Online.

Have you tried using the Common Data Service to store your images?  It is easy.

Hello Powerapps team,

This feature or function implemented yet? We have projects on hold right now waiting for this to be done?

Any update please so we can provide it to our Boss.

 

Thanks,

I still think John Liu's is a good solution. You have a lot of control over the additional properties you push to the document library too. All done in PowerApss and Flow.

Badly needed for some many industries and uses cases (real estate, insurance, event management, etc..)

I am suprised we still cant upload any sort of file. Powerapps is awesome at a lot of stuff, but basic FTP should have been developed bofore any sort of general release!

I managed to save images in a sharepoint list, but with some workarounds, but it's still not possible for me to save pen input. I know Microsoft describes a solution, but it's blob-strings, and not permanently saved pen input - disappointing. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get knowledge about when to expect an easy way to save pictures and fine input - maybe PowerApps are too young?

Hi All

Is there any updates to this? I feel its a must have feature that is well overdue for so many people.
