Use PowerApp and Flow to create a mobile app for adding a document to a library

My understanding is that adding a document to a SharePoint document library is not possible in PowerApps yet, but you can add an attachment to a list. 

 

So my thought was first screen in the PowerApp is add the attachment to a SharePoint list, then after submit, then run a flow that creates that file in the library, then the navigates to a 2nd screen where the user could update the values on the SharePoint document library document.  

 

Totally crazy to try to execute?  I am a former InfoPath and SharePoint designer user, but very much for the business side, not the coding side.

Hi @Laci_Admin_PointB 

 

Not crazy at all. 

 

You can create a SharePoint list with the same columns as in your document library. You can use the list to upload a file as an attachment and add metadata.

 

Then use the Flow to copy the attachment to your document library and update the file properties using metadata from SharePoint list.
