Save Office365 User empl ID to SharePoint

I am trying to save a users ID, save in a variable, to a SharePoint list.  I have numerous methods and it simply does not save.  I have the following:

SharePoint column - 

  • EmpId - Single line of text

PowerApp

  • OnStart - Set(gloThisUserId, Office365Users.MyProfileV2().mailNickname (this is used to store emp id)

For the patch statement, I have tried:

    Patch(
          List name, 
                 {EmpId: gloThisUserId}
       )

 

I have also tried adding a label populated with the gloThisUserId and modifying Patch to:

     

   Patch(
          List name, 
                 {EmpId: Label1.Text}
       )

The only why it has worked is when I hard coded the text:

   Patch(
          List name, 
                 {EmpId: "123456"}
       )

 

Any idea why it won't patch the variable value? Or label text?  Ahhhh - please help!  Seems so simple but I cannot figure this one out.

Re: Save Office365 User empl ID to SharePoint

Raising this to the top - hoping for a resolution.  I have an app I need to release for testing by next week and this is a critical piece.  Any ideas how to resolve.

This seems to be resolved. No change in my part so not sure what fixed the issue.
