Table structure advice - a PA based on Sharepoint lists

I'm just starting out to learn Power Apps.  The only tools I have right now is Power Apps built over a Sharepoint Online list(s).  

Our records tend to make frequent use of people-type of assignments - like who is the assigned _______, the assigned _______, and so on and so forth.  In many cases, we need to assign multiple people - so for the Foreman column, there might be 5 of them.  


In the past, under sloppy development (i.e., sharepoint-only), we might just cram 5 people into that column, in Sharepoint, column type=Person or Group.  But I want to begin incorporating all of my database development training into my Power Apps experience as much as I possibly can.  So, obviously, this is a one-to-many relationship (one primary record, many Foreman values), so I can just begin by making a second Sharepoint list meant to contain one record for each Foreman person......all linked (foreign key) to the master record............Right?  It will be possible (later, when I'm making the Power app), to do all of the Power Apps patching that I need in order to keep this relationship faithful, right?  Any other suggestions?


Ok, thanks.  I will try it out and you are right - for no cost it is a good tool.
