allow my list's create form (which is customized using power app) to support managed metadata field which allow multiple values

I have a custom list and this custom list has a managed metadata field which have a hierarchy in its terms + allow multiple values, as follow:-

Now when i create a power app's create form, the managed metadata field will be rendered as a drop-down without any hierarchy and without the ability to select multiple values. as follow:-

so can anyone advice if power apps allow us to have a managed metadata which have a hierarchy in its terms + allow multiple values?

Thanks

Have you remembered to set the SelectMultiple property of the ComboBox to true?

The hierarchy is not going to work in PowerApps.  It will only work with flat data unfortunately.

no will try, but this should be done automatically?

@johnjohn123 

The SelectMultiple property is configured automatically based on what the datasource allows but I don't know how it behaves for maanged metadata.  Hence, the suggestion 🙂

ok i changed the allow multiple property to true and i can select multiple terms. thanks..

but still the terms will be shown without any hierarchy inside the drop-down. unlike how i SharePoint built-in managed metadata works do you have any idea? also we can not show the terms selection dialog to select from., as follow:-
