How to use a picklist from the common data environment in power apps

When I add the common data service as a source I can only add tables and not picklists. I understand I can use the picklists to control the data in the table entities but how do I refer to them in the app without having to make a copy of them as a table?


For example I would like to use hte picklists as the data source for drop down menus.

Hi Dave,


At this point the picklists from CDS can only be used as part of an entity. Great suggestions though, I'm adding @mabolan from the Studio to see if he's interested in taking this suggestion forward.



Hi @CWesener,


I´m also looking for this possibility. As we have already created codebook (picklist) in CDS it will be nice to have chance to use it also in PApp.
