How to auto-populate the Manager Details based on the person field

Hi Team, 

 

I have an onboarding application which uses the datasource as sharepoint list. Currently there are 4 person/group field in powerapp. 

 

1. employee details

2. Manager Details

3. Trainer details

4. Process trainer. 

 

As the below screenshot

 Currently all these columns are entered manually. My current requirement is that the Manager feild should be populated automatically based on employe details.

 

For example- If I am the new joiner the moment I select/enter my account/name in the Employee details it should automatically pop up the manager email without needing me to enter the manager details manually. 

 

Currently I have the below connectors as in screenshot

 

 

thanks in advance

 

Regards

Priya

Hi @Priyasantra ,

Do you want to automatically populate a person field(Manager Details) based on selection of another person field(Employee Details)?

Could you tell me whether these two person field allows multiple selections?

I assume that no.

You could set like this:
1)combo box's Items for Employee Details:

Choices(listname.'Employee Details')

2)combo box's Items for Manager Details:

Choices(listname.'Manager Details')

DefaultSelectedItems:

If(!IsBlank(employeecomboboxname.Selected.Email),{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
        Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|"&Office365Users.ManagerV2(employeecomboboxname.Selected.Email).mail,
    Department:"",
   DisplayName:Office365Users.ManagerV2(employeecomboboxname.Selected.Email).displayName,
         Email:Office365Users.ManagerV2(employeecomboboxname.Selected.Email).mail,
      JobTitle:"",
       Picture:""
   })

this datacard's Update:

managercomboboxname.Selected

Hi! I think for the start of your issue this video will be very helpful!

As far as the second part of your question you can set the value to lookup based on the value of the dropdown above. Maybe something like this?

 

If(IsBlank(Lookup(yourdatasource,employeedetailsinsharepoint=employeedetailsinpowerapps,manageremailcolumninsharepoint),manageremailcolumninsharepoint,false)
