Import files from a folder in template app

The default behavior for importing multiple files creates one or more binary parameters which are not allowed in a Template App. Have any of you figured out a workaround for importing multiple (e.g., CSV) files within a Template App?

Thank you very much, @v-yalanwu-msft for responding to my inquiry. I am familiar with the Combine files (binaries) functionality but was very glad to find Ken Puls' blog post on the topic as it provides some great suggestions for cleaning up the automatically generated code.

 

The specific of my inquiry is that I'm looking for a way to use this capability in a Power BI Template App. It appears there's a prohibition against binary parameters in a Template App.

 

Thanks very much.
