Re: Add New Records in power's using LookUp entity

Hi @arvind1987,

 

Lookup field under Dynamics 365 is displayed in primary GUID of the parent entity in PowerApps, in string format.

So if you would like to create a new record under the ToDo entity, for the AssigneeID field, you should find the proper Employeeid through the Employee entity.

With the Lookup fucntion.

Filter, Search, and LookUp functions in PowerApps

 

There is a blog talking about how to switch the lookup GUID into the proper name using function and the Dropdown control, check:
