Display Displayname from SharePoint people field in Powerapps gallery

Hello,

 

I have created a SharePoint list where I have a People column named as "PendingWith". I have connected this SharePoint list to my Gallery in PowerApps. For one of the label in the gallery, when I add the following formula 

ThisItem.PendingWith.DisplayName

it showcases an error "Expected text value.PendingWith.Text". How can I fix this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Display Displayname from SharePoint people field in Powerapps gallery

The error is normally caused by the SharePoint people/group column being set to allow multiple values and the label in PowerApps which expects a text string doesn't know what to do with it.

 

If the multi select is enabled for the column and that is what you want then you can concat the data into a string and display it in a label.

Example: Concat(ThisItem.PendingWith, DisplayName, "; ")
