Collect Office 365 User to SharePoint List Not Working



I am trying to write back the Office 365 user as a column in a SharePoint List. The column is of type Person or Group and when I add new entries via the new button in the sharepoint list, it works great.


However, when in my power app I want to collect the user into that list it does not work. Everything else gets collected perfectly except the two person or group type columns.


Here is the formula

Collect(FeedbackTesting, {Title: SelectedMeetingSubject, Rating: Slider1.Value, Reviewer: Office365Users.MyProfile(), Receiver: First(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm: OrganizerUPN})), MeetingId: SelectedMeetingId, Comments: TextInput1.Text})


Resulting column would be all correct data except the Receiver and Reviewer columns are blank. No errors. Have tried making the profile a variable so that it is "cached" but that doesn't change anything. As an alternative I can record the UPN as text, but this should work...


What am I missing?

Bump, would be great to get some clarity on why I can't collect People or Group type columns in a list.
