Pass Office365User info to SPO LIST

Hi, again.


I am having a heck of a time figuing out how to patch a Offic365User variable into a SPO field formated as Person/Group.


What is the SPO column looking for?


In my form I do a Office365Users.SearchUser().DisplayName on a Drop down box.  I get the name i'm looking for.

Then I try to patch it and all goes bad.

I've copied the DDbox.selected.value to a text box and tried to patch that, and it's also failed.  

Here is the code for my last attempt:

Patch(JobsList2,Defaults(JobsList2),{Title: Text1.Text, JobNumber: Text2.Text, Foreman: TextBox10})


Any help would be appreciated







You want a paid job to do in your sparetime?

I need a time entry app, by years end.

Nothing fancy, one that works and covers what my bosses want.  I think it will be a total of 6 pages.

I've written a workflow for it, based on SPO, but the logic will remain the same.

Because I had to move everythign to Powerpoint from SPO- I'm very far behind and need some help. if you are interested.

I have written to you.

I now have a reqirement to do the same.  I have an app that is taking meeting notes and in this is a To Do action item.  I assign the action to a person using the Office365Users, however I cannot figure out how to Patch the record as it errors out and I cannot use just a standard "text" field.
