Re: PowerApps People picker - Current User

This doesn't seem to properly work for me.  It will update the field in powerapps with the users name, but when submitting, it doesn't actually pass the user to the person field in the sharepoint list.  Did it work for you?

Re: PowerApps People picker - Current User

Setting the Default and DefaultSelectedItems does not work for me and it does not get saved. I've tried changing the Update property of the data card as well but no luck. Has anything changed?

Re: PowerApps People picker - Current User

not with this new simple method.  Please refer to my older post, but here it is again.

 

on the App Onstart action set the following variables:

Set(gvCurrentUser, Office365Users.MyProfileV2());

Set(gvCurrentManager, Office365Users.ManagerV2(gvCurrentUser.userPrincipalName));

 

for the person field on the DefaultSelectedItems action

 

If(IsBlank(ThisItem.’Applicant’),

{

DisplayName: gvCurrentUser.displayName,

Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & gvCurrentUser.userPrincipalName,

Department:gvCurrentUser.department, 

Email:User().Email, 

JobTitle:gvCurrentUser.jobTitle

},

Parent.Default

)
