Every tutorial i watch have Office365User on a individual ComboBox. I was using Sharepoint Person Type colum till now. And i'd like to move on to this connector. but, there are still some basic things i can't wrap my head around. I have a simple form which has a sharepoint as backend.

Column Name       Type

Name                     Text

POC                        Person

POCManager          Person


When i create a form in powerapps it will by default will give me combobox in datacard with sharepoint person type column logic inside it: Choices([@ListName].POC)

Should i change this code to office365User.SearchUser()    ?????

No, since Sharepoint is already connected to this connector, you can retrieve any information via the form.


Only in case you'd like to perform other actions for which you are not going through your Sharepoint datasource, you can use this connector. 


More information on the use of Office 365 Users connector in PowerApps can be found here: 


Connect to Office 365 Users connection from Power Apps - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs
