People picker column .Email property not working on powerapps



I've build an app with a Sharepoint list as a data source, in that list I have a people picker column, when I try to get informations from that column ex : column.DisplayName, it work fine Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 9.50.34 AM.png , but when I try to get the Email address I got an error ! Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 9.57.47 AM.png. The same issue occurs when i try to use a built-in column as 'Created_by' 


What I'm i missing?

Thank You for your help

Hi @v-qiaqi-msft 

The problem was fixed by deleting the entire SPList and rebuilt it again ! so I think the bogue was on the list it self, but i can't explain it

What does the error says?


Hi @Nogueira1306  this is the error message Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 10.19.54 AM.png to translate it says "The name is not valid.This Identifier is not reconized"

Thanks for your help

Okay. If you try only: ThisItem.CreatedBy, does it work?

If not, please tell me what is that "EtudiantUserId"

No it doesn't work, it expects something following Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 10.33.17 AM.png , "EtudiantUserId" is a person column in the Sharepoint list, but what seem weird to me is that even "ThisItem.'Created By'.Email " is not working and it throws the same error


Okay.. It is working for me.
Make sure that you are on the gallery and the label you want. After that wirte: ThisItem.EtudiantUserId.


Check what values gives you after the " . "

@Chawki  if this does not work, please show me your Etudiant Collumn

Ok, here it is this is the first part after the dot Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 12.22.44 PM.png and here is the second part Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 12.22.59 PM.png.

As you can see all needed property are displayed, and all of them works just fine except the .Email one ☹️

Why is that happening.. show me you collumn ples. The collumn and the settings

Sure,  Capture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 12.50.16 PM.pngCapture d’écran 2021-08-10 à 12.57.16 PM.png
