Dynamics 365 Powerapp pulling GUID, not values

I tried to create an app that pulled RMAs from the Field Service app, and instead of getting the actual values for lookups to things like Accounts, it give me GUIDs.  Looking through the forum, this was sopposed to have been resolved months ago, and the workaround doesn't seem to exist in the current UI.  

 

Can anyone help me with this?

Re: Dynamics 365 Powerapp pulling GUID, not values

Ive been trying to make some apps for Dynamics 365 and have noticed this as well.
you have to make the lookup yourself. 

I did this tutorial: 

http://blog.sonomapartners.com/2016/10/creating-a-powerapps-mobile-application-with-dynamics-crm-in-...

 

 

They look up the account from the contact this way:

LookUp(Accounts, Text(accountid)= ThisItem._parentcustomerid_value).name

 

 

Their formula didnt work so i changed it to:

LookUp(Accounts;accountid = ThisItem._parentcustomerid_value; name)
