Adding options to an CDS option set via an app (user input)


I have an app with an option set showing a series of locations. This is used as a dropdown on a form.  

I've been asked to set it up so that end users can add option (new locations). 

Is it possible to do this with an option set? If it isn't is there a better alternative?

You might be better off posting this on the dedicated CDS subforum, but my understanding is that this cannot be done.

Personally, I would steer clear of CDS specific 'features' (options sets, N:N relationships, Polymorphic relationships, Multi-value fields) wherever possible and stick to standard relational features. Whenever I have encountered these CDS specific features that are supposed to make CDS easier, I always find that in the long run they are way more trouble and limiting than they are worth (at least from the perspective of a canvas Power Apps developer).
