Data Label to display text from SharePoint List Value

Hi there.

 

I've got a PowerApps form that I'd like to have a Label at the top of the form in view mode to show the person's full name and another one to show the value of the entry's status.

 

I can't quite figure out how to set the data label to Concat  'TrackerList' to the FirstName and SecondName field, as well as to do a label that shows "Current Status:" ('StatusValue')

 

Aiming at DataCard Values don't seem to work either but I remember this used to be easy to do in Infopath. What am I missing?

To show a User name put this code in the Text property of a label

User().FullName

 

To join two or more text strings together use the & symbol just like Excel

User().FullName & " is the best!"

 

Show the text from a DataCardValue text input like this.

DataCard_Status.Text

 

For this question you are going to have to share a screenshot of your app.

Couldn't quite get it to work on a label but it seemed to accept it it in the Text Input option. Many thanks!
