Display 'Person or Group' Data Type Column in Data Table



I currently have a couple SP lists that are referenced in my app.


On one data table, I have a few records being displayed based on a gallery selection.


One of those columns I want displayed is a 'Person or Group' data type.


PowerApps does not like this, and is expecting a text value. Any ideas on how I could display this information as a text data type?


I am currently using ThisItem.Supervisor as my code (doesn't work).


I used ThisItem.COLUMN.Value in other areas where I had similar issues, and that worked, but not for this specific column/data type.


Thank you!


Fixed it!

In case you folks are curious, this is the code I was required to use:




Concat(ThisItem.'Supervisor'.DisplayName, Concatenate(Text(DisplayName),", "))






Glad to have it working now! Had me stumped for a couple days 😤


Still don't know why it works, but we'll take it.


Not working perfectly though. Only the first record in the 'Supervisor' column in my SP list is being returned to the data table, even though I have multiple users selected for that record.

Thanks a lot !
