New Form will not display people in the Person Field (connected to a sharepoint list)

Hi all. I am having an issue where I am try to add a form to my Powerapp. This will be an Edit version of the form, where the Default Mode is New. The form is connected to a Sharepoint List. When I insert the form into my Powerapp, the Person field is not working. Typically I should be able to search the Personal field, and it generates people. This time, it is generating blank choices, even when I search for a name. I have done this with 13 other forms in this Powerapp, so I am really not sure why this one is acting differently. I am thankful for any ideas!

First, there is a bug that was introduced in the last release of PowerApps in regard to the Item list you are seeing.

So, first, go to your Combobox and select the Items property.  Remove the formula there and enter it back in.

   Choices('Aux 7 Tracker'.UserinAux7)

 

Then, while you are ON that combobox, click on the Edit Field for it (Not the Edit Field for your form as you showed in your screenshot).

Then, you will see all of the columns available to you that you can assign to the primary and search fields.  Choose the one you want...most likely DisplayName.

Select your combobox and then look at the property pane on the right.  There you will see a place to click to edit fields.  Choose that and then select the column from the people column you want to display.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

I do have the Person field selected under "fields". It's just not searching for people in the Person field for some reason.Person Field 4.JPG
