In this Power Apps tutorial video, you will learn about uploading files into Dataverse from Power Apps. We will be working with the Dataverse File Column, leverage the Patch function to patch attachments to Dataverse File Column, upload multiple files using a related Table with File column, Download Dataverse file attachments, download Dataverse files, view attached files using PDF viewer, delete & add files.

File columns store binary data. File columns may be in any custom or customizable Dataverse table.

Patch allows us to insert or update one or more records in a data source, or merge records outside of a data source.

Video will also showcase how to work with the form control experience in Power Apps to upload files thanks to the Attachments control.
