Person or Group column does not show results

My Datasource is Sharepoint online list. Within this i got a custom Person or Group site column, that is pointing on a Sharepoint Group.

 

When  creating a new record in Power Apps, the Drop Down field is showing 0 results .... but creating a record within Sharepoint directly does not show issues.

 

what might be the problem here?

 

best regards,

Hi all, after a while I tried again ... it did not work ... I created the App again and now it works ... seems there was a PowerApps Update fixing this 🙂

Re: Person or Group column does not show results

Hi EED_Solutions,

 

It seems that it is a default behavior. If you already have values in the People and Group column in your list, the value would be shown when you editing an existing item on the app.


Please try if this works on your side. When creating a new record, on the People and Group column, please try to enter a word or a letter in the box, then the related items would be shown and you could select from them.


Hope this could be a reference for you.

Re: Person or Group column does not show results

Hi Mabel Mao,

 

I created two records within sharepoint and they are shown correctly within PowerApps.

If i create a new record, i can type my Username and it is found, but not of the two other members within this group.... 😞

Got an Idea?

Re: Person or Group column does not show results

Hi,

 

Do you have some Update?

 

I just tried it again ... It is still not working -> within Sharepoint List i can add the specific people, but within PowerApps it is not working ... I can add people that are not in the group, but can't add people that are in the specific group ....

 

Best regards,

@EED_Solutions

Eric - did you resolve this?  If so, how were you able to display names in dropdown if in edit mode?

Thanks!

Re: Person or Group column does not show results

Hi,

 

thx for reaching out.

no, it did not resolved, it seems that i can only select people that have a valid powerapps licence.

But that makes not sense to me!

Not sure if this is what you were looking for.   What I have is a SP list with a Person/Group lookup.  In PowerApps, I want to display the names of the people in the column of the SP list in a dropdown.  Because it is Person/Group lookup, I had to write the dropdown formula as:

Sort(Distinct(Datasource, SharePointColumnName.DisplayName), Result)

The OnSelect and OnChange properties are set to false by default. 

I set it to true and it works perfectly fine!
