People field from Sharepoint List not showing in default app

I created an app from the drop down option in a sharepoint list. The app works find but on the BrowseGallery screen I do not see the people filed as an option in the data (Data Source). It looks like it only shows text fields - none of the others data type show up either. 

 

How can I get the people field to show as an option?

Re: People field from Sharepoint List not showing in default app

Hi,

 

I am able to display the people from a People or Group field in a SharePoint list.  If the the list has a People field named Approver the add a text field to the gallery with the Text value of ThisItem.Approver.Email  which would display the email address or .DisplayName for the display name.  I have implemented this on a "Blank" gallery layout.

Hi @virtualrw,

 

It is true that with the new patch, people and group column doesn't show in the list of data source window:

The method @ACC provided works for me, please have a try.

Re: People field from Sharepoint List not showing in default app

This worked for me a couple of days ago and now it's not working, even when I add the Outlook 365 User Connection. Looks like it's broken again. Getting the error "The property expects Text values, but the rule produces incompatible Table values". VERY FRUSTRATING! 

 

Anybody got this working? as of February 7, 2018?

I had to add  a DROPDOWN field and then choose "DisplayName" from value and then make the Chevron color WHITE and border "0" so that the field would appear as a text box. Really stupid workaround. Hope this gets fixed soon!!

In my case, I did not have to add a text control. I selected the layout Title and subtitle and updated the property Text of the control Subtitle with:

 

ThisItem.Employee.DisplayName
