File Picker

The File Picker component allows users to upload files in your app. These files are converted to links that you can then display in your app.

The File Picker component

This is perfect for uploading documents such as Word Files or PDFs.

Configuration

Make sure that you bind the file picker to an empty column. Whenever a user uploads a file it will replace the contents of that column with the link to the new file.

If a user exits the app or the screen while the file is uploading, note that the file may not be uploaded properly.

Configuration

You can add the File Picker component to any part of your app. Once you add the component, set the Data column where the file links will be recorded.
