Populate Default selected items Email field Dataverse


i have an app connected to a table in dataverse. I have created a Column (Email).


in the application form i added a combo box in the datacard and set the Items to  Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:ComboBox2.SearchText,top:100})


I want to display a specific email hard coded and i am not sure what to add in the Default or Default selected Items.


if i chose {Mail: ""} it shows no value.


Any ideas on  how to write this?

Try this in the DefaultSelectedItems:


'@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & "",
DisplayName: "DisplayName of the Person",
Email: "",
JobTitle: "",
Picture: ""

i am not using SharePoint. I use dataverse

Is an existing record? if not, you wont be able to do this i believe. When there's already a datasource associated the combobox will only accept as a default value any values that exist on the associated table.
