Get number of likes from Sharepoint List data source

Hi, does anyone know how to read likes count from a sharepoint list?


I have in my sharepoint list "Number of Likes" enabled. 


I however cannot read that data from PowerApps. The best that I can find there is ThisItem.LikedBy

Hi hieuta,


To test this issue, I enabled “Rating setting” for one of my list, then select the “Likes” selection. Then create an app based on the list, I found that there is no value for the Rating column shown on the app. Though I set the Text property of the column as ThisItem.LikedBy.DisplayName.


Then I try to select the “Star ratings” selection, seems that it works. When I create an app based on this setting, set the Text property of the column as ThisItem.Ratings, then the corresponding value will be shown on the app.




Please try to configure the “Rating setting” as “Star ratings” to see if it will meet your needs. Please feel free reply if you need more help.



Best regards,

Thanks Mao for your prompt reply !

I have also tried the option Ratings and it works. Although it displays all ratings in a String format, eg. "4,3,4,5," 

How can I update ratings/like from PowerApps?
