Make a Value Visible when A Choice is Selected from Another Sharepoint List

Hi, I created 2 People columns; Approver Level 1 and Approver Level 2. I want that when the user fills in the form in the Employee list in the Approval Type column, their Approvers name will be visible. Approver Level 1 and Approver Level 2 are set in the Approvers list and both are People columns. Can anyone please help me?

Hi @syhrh,

So Sorry for the mistake😂:

LookUp(Approver,Title=DataCardValue3.Selected.Value).'Approver Level 1'.DisplayName

Just replace the + with the =


Best Regards,

In those Approver labels you should be able to do a lookup based on the value of the approval type.


Something like Lookup( ApproverList, ApprovalType = ApprovalTypeDropdown.SelectedText.Value ).Level1Approver.DisplayName

@syhrh - You need to use lookup column.
Create a Lookup column in 'test- Leave Request' SharePoint List.

Procedure to follow is explained here :,are%20retr....

@jcfDanielThank you for replying. Which property should I input this formula? 

@AJ_vizMan Thank you for your suggestion. The link given shows that the values need to be selected. I want the Approver Level 1 and Approver Level 2 columns are view mode only and be automated when any Approval type is selected.

Hi @syhrh , in the label´s text.

Regards. JD.

@jcfDaniel but there's no label's text. The datacard and its datacardvalue don't have Text



this is the Items property in the Approver Level 1 datacard. I'm trying to filter only Approver Level 1 display name with the Approval Type (DataCardValue3) that will appear in the box. But it's blank when I run it. How to make it right?



I don't use forms so I don't know much about them but there is a text property in DataCardValue, assuming the column is text in your table.

Regards. JD.

@jcfDaniel No, there's no text property in DataCardValue. I searched for it
