Enter item manually to PowerApps Dropdown column as a choice value

I have a SharePoint list have a choice column is "Company".For "Company" choice column I have enable "Allow 'Fill-in' choices". I have also added a "Other" option in a "Company" choice field in SharePoint. Now I have open "Edit Form control" and display a  NewForm of SharePoint list data source. I have added a text input box control in the PowerApps form and set below to "Company" choice field.

I have set the visibility propety of text box control to below. When the Company choice column other value will selecet the text box will appear otherwise hide.

Data Card Update propety wrote below rule.

So when user select the Other choice value from the "Company" choice value then  the text box will appear. User can enter value in the text box manually. So it is working fine it is successfully save to SP list. When second time user will open the newform in the PowerApps and click on the "Company" choice column dropdown we will get the manully entered value before as a choice value.

But my query is I donot want to select the other from company choice column. I want user should type new choice value inside the dropdown column. And the value will save to SharePoint list. When I will open second time I should get the manually enter value as a choice value in the Choice field. Is it possible??

I didnot get any solution so I have tried the other option and text box control.

Hi @Anonymous 

 

Can you try to use the below expression on the Update property of the Company DataCard as:
If(DataCardValue3.SearchText in Choices('Sp List'.Company).Value, DataCardValue3.Selected, {Value: DataCardValue3.SearchText})
 
Please update the highlighted part with SPListName.ColumnName
 
Hope this Helps!
