Set "assigned to" when toggle turned on


I hope someone can help

I have an app which assigns a task, linked to a Sharepoint Task List, based on whether a toggle is turned on or not. I am having an issue with this feature as it does not always work correctly i.e. the person is not assigned in the linked task list

This is the formula i am using and it is in the "assigned to" default data card


If(Toggle5.Value=true,{DisplayName:Office365Users.UserProfile("").DisplayName,claims: "i:0#.f|membership|"& Lower(""),Department:"",Email:"",JobTitle:"",Picture:""},ThisItem.'Assigned To')


Is there something I am doing wrong?

There are a lot of "parts" missing to describe your scenario completely, so I will make some assumptions.

The assumptions are that you have a DataCard that is for your Assigned To column and that in that datacard you have a combobox.  And, that your underlying column is defined as a single select person column.


If so, then your Default property for your DataCard should be : ThisItem.'Assigned To'

Your Items property for the combobox should be : Choices([@yourTaskList].'Assigned To')

Your DefaultSelectedItems property for your combobox should be:

            claims: "i:0#.f|membership|"& Lower(_user.mail),

Your Update property should be:  yourComboboxName.Selected


I hope this is helpful for you.

Thank you for getting back to me. Your assumptions are correct

I have made the changes you recommended, however I am getting an error in the DefaultSelectedItems:

"The function 'With' has some invalida arguments"

"Invocation of unknown or unsupported function"


Im not sure which part of the formula is causing this issue
