Re: People Picker filter not working in a sudden

@andrewFiveP, Can you please provide the steps to reproduce this issue? I could not reproduce it by binding a ComboBox control to a SP List Person/Group column with multiple selections enabled. I use the following formula: 

Choices(SPListName.MultipleSelectPerson)

Please also make sure the proper Title, SubTItle, SearchField and Picture fields are configured on the ComboBox control.

The current ETA is for the middle of September.

@dinusc - that ETA is unacceptable. People pickers are a key part of our applications. This seems to have showed up as of version 3.18083.31.

Re: People Picker filter not working in a sudden

@dinusc Happy to reproduce. Steps are Fairly simple.

 

Create a new custom list.

Add a person column to that list.

Select Customize Forms with powerapps.

Add the person column to the form via the data source:

From there publish the form or even test it inside the designer and the people picker does not return results or even brings up suggestions.

 

I will open a service request to chase this up further with the official channels. As the OP said this started happening Monday morning and worked last Friday.

Re: People Picker filter not working in a sudden

According to the provided steps, this is the issue that is neing descissed in this thread. The ComboBox works fine in "multiple selection" mode and I was confused about "multiple tenants" which in yhour case probably means multiple ComboBoxes in a single selection mode.

Re: People Picker filter not working in a sudden

Just throwing this out there in case it relates to or helps provid information for this issue.

 

I am also having an issue similar to this, though I am not positve if they correlate.

We noticed this issue a couple of days ago. Using a SQL View as the datasource, we have a lookup on a dropdown control that won't always pull the correct information. It seems like it occansionally can't see certain records.

Re: People Picker filter not working in a sudden

Thank you, @dinusc.  The issue just started for us today, so I'm guessing it will be another week after it's released before we get the fixed version.

 

The workarounds others have suggested didn't work for me.  Here's the workaround I came up for any of my apps that can't wait for the fix.  I added the Office365Users data connection to the app and text input and list box controls to the card with the people field. The text input is visible in place of the combo box and defaults to ThisItem.PeopleField.DisplayName. The list box Items property is set to:
Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm: TextInput1.Text})

I changed the Update property of the card to:
({'@odata.type':"#microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(ListBox1.Selected.UserPrincipalName),Department:"",DisplayName:ListBox1.Selected.DisplayName,Email: ListBox1.Selected.Mail,JobTitle:".",Picture:"."})

When you start typing a name in the text input control, the list box populates with matches. Selecting a name in the list box control will update the SharePoint people field.

I took it a step further by configuring the text input control to replace your search text with the selected name when you select one. I set the list box control to be visible only when the text input control text isn't blank, doesn't match the current value in the list item, and doesn't match the selected name in the list box. This is completely unnecessary, but I think it keeps the form cleaner.
