Updated: 1 day ago

In this video series you will learn how to work with attachments in Power Apps. The following 3 videos are included in this series:

Working with Attachments

Save All Files with the Attachment Control Do you or your users need to be able to upload and save different types of files? If you have attempted to accomplish this via the Add Media control, you know that this control only shows image files. In Shane’s Power Apps Attachment Control – Upload All Files not Images Only to Azure Blob Storage video, he demonstrates how to hack the Attachment Control to upload all files rather than image files only. The files are then saved off to Azure Blob Storage, and all of this is shown in the context of an expense report app.
