PowerApp Edit Form with Person or Group field not working

hi,

i have created a edit form with Dropdown (as a list of user from person or group field from Sharepoint List).

i have selected a user in the dropdown and i have updated coding in UPDATE Field in PowerApps as below:

 

 {Value: DataCardValue14.SelectedItems}

 

then i press submit button, the result is new record created but Person or Field cell is empty.

 

then i have changed UPDATED coding as below: 

 

 {Value:Table({  
'@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",  
DisplayName:DataCardValue14_1.Selected.DisplayName,  
Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Email),  
Department:"",  
Email:DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Email,  
JobTitle:"",  
Picture:""  
})}

 

also i have below code in Dropdown.items field:

 

Choices([@Disciplinary_Irregularities_Report].Reporting_Person)

 

BUT The RESULT IS SAME, NEW record created with empty Person or Group data.

 

Please help me to resolve this issue:

Hi @AsanKani ,

 

Could you please share more details about your scenario? What is the Item property of the Edit Form? Is the Person Data Card inserted via Edit fields of the Form?

 

As per you mentioned Update property of the Data Card is DataCardValue14.SelectedItems, I assume that it is a Combo box in a Data Card which you inserted via Edit fields of the Form. Then the point you need to check is whether you have set the Person or Group column allow multiple selections:

 

If yes, the Update of the Data Card would be:

DataCardValue14.SelectedItems

If Person column not allow multiple selections, the Update would be:

DataCardValue14.Selected

 

Since you would like to use Office365Users.SearchUsers() in the Dropdown, you will have to:

1. Set Items of the Dropdown to:

 

Office365Users.SearchUser()

 

2. Set Update of the Data Card to:

 

{  
'@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",  
DisplayName:DataCardValue14_1.Selected.DisplayName,  
Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Mail),  
Department:"",  
Email:DataCardValue14_1.Selected.Mail,  
JobTitle:"",  
Picture:""  
}

 

In SP list, values in Person or Group type columns allow single selection are RECORDs with fields in my above formula, so you need to update the record value to the list in same structure.

 

Hope this helps.

Is the drop-down a custom field or is it people picker field from the SharePoint list.

Sorry i did not ask you this earlier.

Is your dropdown field within the form datacard or outside of the form.

And which field are you seeing as empty when the form is saved?

Can you take a screen shot if possible?
