Sharepoint group - Dropdown

Hello i am trying to create one sharepoint list app. i have one filed (Group/Person) that i´ve filtered based on one Sharepoint Group. 

It is working fine, but my problem is that i want to allow users click on the arrow and see all posible persons (approvers) but if they click in the arrow they aren´t allowed to see any result. They have to introduce any letter to see something. Any clue about how i could manage that??? 

Thank you in advance!!

Hello,

I had the same issue and I do net get why People Picker is not made easier in PowerApps ootb, but I found a smart solution for me.

  • Create a List with a choice column, choices are your user email or DisplayName

If you need it in a person /group field, then use the data froom choice column to patch it in the group field

Hi @Pablofernandez,

 

What is the result that you do not want the users to see? As far as I know, in default dropdown control of person and group coulmn that created by PowerApps, only user names would show.

Hello @v-monli-msft

Thanks for your answer. 
I´ve created one Sharepoint Group with some managers. When the user click on the Dropdown he see that:

Only when they introduce any letter they can get any result. But what i want is that they can see all options from this sharepoint group. Do you know if this is posible? Maybe with any formula? 

Thanks in advance!
