Enable user to enter free text on combo box from sharepoint list datasource

Hi all

 

I have my sharepoint list with a column called distribution center, this is a choice variable with "can add values manually" enabled.

How ever, when I use my Power App, I don´t have the possibility to enter free text rather than 'All' option. Even though I write anything in the box and hit save, it won´t store on my SP List.

The app I have is:

How can I make it work?

 

Thanks!

The combo box doesn't support that feature of the SharePoint column. Here is a video from @Shanescows that shows a workaround.

PowerApps use Combobox search text to add a dynamic value to SharePoint Choice column

@Jeff_Thorpe hi!

 

I tried your solution and worked.

However I would like to enter values from the combobox choices AND free text. Unfortunately I can only do one of them and not both:

How can I have both choices and free text?

 

Thanks!
