Custom SharePoint list form, Person field not displaying values in people picker



Since a few hours ago, the people picker control stopped working correctly for any new or edited SharePoint PowerApp forms.

Unchanged forms on SharePoint lists still works as expected.



Create a new SharePoint list, add Person column, customise the form, save and publish.

The result is that when you add a new item, you can start typing a person's name, and you can see it queries and returns a result in the picker options, but all rows are blank.

If you select one of the blank rows and save the item, the SharePoint list has the correct person value saved.


Opening an existing item with a person populated in the list item also seems blank in the PowerApp.


The picker control still picks up DisplayName and Email and other fields from the Choices(...) function for the items, but it seems that those fields don't have values populated correctly.







@RumorRyder, That might have happened if you removed the list data source and added it back. Now, when you do it - people pickers that were dependent on that list - break. It started breaking like that about 2-3 months ago. Before that we used to be able to remove and add data sources with no problems.
