Can't show person field in powerapp forms

I am trying to show an field of type person and this is how it shows in the form:

 

#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPlistExpandedUser 

 

Without showing me the alias or display name of the user for the displayed item?

 

how can i fix that?

Re: Can't show person field in powerapp forms

I don't have any of these options, it seems you have a different SharePoint column type.

 

I changed it to DisplayName and i was able to view Person Name in the form.

 

Thanks.

Re: Can't show person field in powerapp forms

Currently there is a bug in some SharePoint types that the values for some column types do not show up properly - which may be what you're seeing.

 

If that is your case, then there is a workaround that you can use. Select the card that has the issue, then on the Form customization pane, select the '...' option; it will show a dropdown with the value to use. If the selected value is '@odata.type', change it to 'Value', and you should see the correct value in the form.

Let us know if this fixes your issue! We're working on a fix for the original problem so that you won't need to do that.

Hi Mostafa,
Is it possible to add multiple people names in powerapps. Like a sharepoint list which has multiple people names same can be achieved in powerapps.

Please let me know if there is any workaround available also?

Thanks,
Himanjan
