You might have come across a need to provide UI to upload file and set metadata from PowerApps. Usually if you user needs to perform lot of clicks and multiple actions to upload a file and set the metadata in SharePoint. How if we provide one UI to upload file as well as set the metadata at the same time? This will avoid issues of files being checked out due to missing required metadata.
