Sharepoint list "Location" type column

Hi all,

I'm creating an event submission form that saves the requesters event details to a Sharepoint list.  I want the submitter to put in a location (address) of the event's venue.  I used the "Location" type and checked street, city, and state.  When I connect to the list, it shows city, state, street as fields but I notice they aren't editable, which I understand since the "Location" type column is a rich field and it auto-populates the other fields.  How would I go about prompting the user for an address in my form and ultimately using it populate the Location field which then shows the location?  Or would I be better off keeping it simple and just using text fields for city and state rather than using the fancier "Location" column type (i'm a noob so whichever is easier is probably best.)

Hi @russrimm ,

Do you want to edit location field from PowerApps?

The location type is editable in sharepoint list.However,it turns to read-only in PowerApps.

I suggest you express your views on PowerApps Ideas Forum.Your precious advice will be very helpful for our work.

What’s more,you can try to use text field to fill in information about location.
