Company Name or Primary Contact in Common Data Service Connectors Account and Contact

I am trying to create a Power App which brings in a list of Accounts and Contacts from the Common Data Service.  I want to join them, but can't find the common fields in either entity.  Account doesn't seem to have Primary Contact, and more of a concern, Contact doesn't seem to have Company Name exposed. 

 

Any ideas?

Re: Company Name or Primary Contact in Common Data Service Connectors Account and Contact

Hi @ghdunn ,

 

The standard entity Account has the address1_primarycontactname/address2_primarycontactname fields. And Contacts has the company field. You can check on all the fields included for the standard entity from PowerApps site. 

 

If you mean that these fields don't show inside the controls like Form, then you can actually add the additional fields by selecting the Form > Edit fields > Add field:

Thanks @v-monli-msft 

 

I think I tried that...but this is what I see:  no "Company" field.

 

I am obviously missing something!

I have worked out my error.  The standard drop down does not display all fields (to avoid clutter), but if you search for the field you want it exposes it.  The search works for both the field name AND the display name.

 

Many thanks!
