How to access the multiple entries in a people column and display it as a label in power apps

I have a people column with multiple entries allowed in a sharepoint list called as L3 Leaders. I want to display the value that is entered in the sharepoint list in power apps. I was using this formula - First('sharepointlist').'L3 Leader'.DisplayName. It was working fine when the people column was single entry. As soon as i changed it to multiple entry it is not working. Please let me know how to resolve this.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

When changing the column from single select to multiselect, the column will return a table, rather than a record. This will break you app as the controls aren't expecting this.

 

Try replacing your code with: 

Concat(First('sharepointlist).'L3 Leader',DisplayName,", ")
