Expense Report Approver Users Problem

Hello everyone !

 

I created the Expense Report Template in PowerApps and i followed this tutorial:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/expense-report-install.

 

After successfully creating both lists in SharePoint and adding connections for the app.

 

When i play the app and trying to create new expense report, the APPROVER field is not clickable and i can't write the name of the approver. 

When i play the AppWhen i play the App

 

Here is the Data Connections of the app:

Note: I am testing on 1 user in my organization and this user already got full control on the site where the lists are located. Also all the column types of the list are the same as in the tutorial.

 

So any idea how to fix this problem ?

Hi all

 

I was having the same problem and solved it by changing the "IsSearchable" property on the Approver field from false to true. Tested it and it seems fine now.

 

Hopefully a simple fix 🙂

Hi @Julien2 ,

Could you show me more settings about your form?

Please check:

1)this form's Mode. It shoule be set to New.

2whether they are textinputs? If they are lables, they will be read-only.

 

Best regards,

Hello @v-yutliu-msft 

 

I checked the "New Expense Form"  i found that the form is in already in NEW mode.

 

Here is a screenshot:

And the APPROVER field is Combo Box.

I just imported the app from the download link in the tutorial so i didn't change anything.

 

Thank you!

Any suggestions what should i do to fix my issue ?

Hi @v-yutliu-msft 

 

I have fixed some errors and now i got 0 errors in the Appchecker but the issue remain the same.

The Approver field is not reading any data from the ApproverName column in SharePoint list of type (Person or Group).

 

The function of the Approver Field is Choices(Expenses.ApproverName).

What kind of functions we should use to trigger the users ?

I can read data from other fields, but i have no idea why this field won't read data it's weird..

Any help please ?

Greetings. I have the same issue. I can load other data except for the Approver Field. Please, help us retrieve data from ApproverName (Person or Group) in SharePoint.

Thanks!
