Office365User in EditForm









As you can see from my pictures i have 4 text column. 2 for employee and 2 for manager. In the first text column i remove the text input and add combo box in the data card. Properties are set as shown in picture. Data saved correctly but in the edit form it doesn't work. Also i am doing this for single person. I need to do this for multi select person.



So my requirement is: Create an edit form that can add and edit multi select person type and fetch manager. All columns in the backend is text type. I hope i explained it proper. Thanks in advance.

Hi @zmansuri ,

Manager's name should be


and Mail for the one below. The multi-select, however is a larger journey - I may not be the best person here as I rarely use this function (we maintain a separate staff list).

Hi @zmansuri 


For Edit mode, we need to set DefaultSelectedItems property of the AssignToName Combobox to



    '@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
    Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(ThisItem.AssignToEmail),
    Department: "",
    DisplayName: ThisItem.AssignToName,
    Email: Lower(ThisItem.AssignToEmail),
    JobTitle: "",
    Picture: ""



Hey, I set the DefaultSelectedItem as you said. But it's still not filling the values in other text fields.


I understand. Thank you anyways.
