Hi @Gorilla_8 ,

 

I believe you are implementing in canvas app and when you add a personalized card you need to set it to a respective column in SPList I want to know that list column.

Hi @KrishnaV , I tried, and says "expected text value"

Hi @Gorilla_8 ,

 

Try this, if I get you right you are trying to set the logged user name in the text field but want to save the details in a people picker control? if so:
Text property of the Inputtext field:

User().FullName

 and at the button onSelect time user as below:

Patch(SPListName,Default(SPListName),{Title:"Title",associate:{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
        Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & User().Email,
    Department:"",
   DisplayName:User().FullName,
         Email:User().Email,
      JobTitle:"",
       Picture:""
   }})

Hi @Gorilla_8 ,

 

Patch needs the datasource as the parameter we can't pass the form as a parameter. change the list as below:

Patch(SPListName,Default(SPListName),{Title:"Title",PeoplePickerfieldName:
{'@odata.type':"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
        Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & User().Email,
    Department:"",
   DisplayName:User().FullName,
         Email:User().Email,
      JobTitle:"",
       Picture:""
   }})
