The connector will return that error if you don't have a manager specified in your directory. You could add a manager in your company directory or remove the logic in the app that checks for your manager.

I recently tried to use the Leave Request PowerApp template but unfortunately the data never gets written to excel file. I compared code of my PowerApp with some video tutorials on YouTube and found that the patch function code on Submit Request itself is missing from my template. I tried to create multiple PowerApps using template without luck. Can someone please point me to the correct code or solution so that the excel and the application gets connected.

I could do with some assistance here ... I'm trying to convert this app to SPO.  After it created the data.xlsx file I exported it to SP and have 3 lists - one for each tab.  However I would really like to get the leave types into a drop-down list - I don't like the column for each type of leave approach - seems an uneccesary overhead to me when a drop-down is so much simpler and there are a lot of reasons for leave.  I also need to cater for temps, part-timers, and so on.  Anyway - I can't get it to write the submitted data to the SP lists.  I assume I have to change the submit function to Patch but although the lists have the same names as the spreadsheet tabs, do I need to change anything with them?  I used to do a lot of this type of thing in Visial Studio and with PHP/MySQL back in the day, and PowerApps is a bit of a departure and taking some time to get my head roud it but I'm getting there and getting to like it.
