how to input into a people picker column in SharePoint from PowerApp

I have a PowerApps app that has a field that is supposed to feed into a people picker column in SharePoint online.

I have a data card for "Manager Name" ,which is a people picker column in SharePoint, the card contains a combo box.




The Combo box contains this information which allows it to search Office 365 and return a list of users. I can then choose the user from the list.



This is the information for the data card which should feed into the SharePoint column



I'm not sure what I need to put into "default" and "update" fields which I think is where the issue is arising.

I am fairly new to PowerApps so sorry if this is an obvious question






Hi all, Really appreciate your help and suggestions.


I've managed to fix the problem. It was something really stupid on my behalf.


(I took over the project from a colleague and when I took over the project the columns were text fields, and one of the changes I made was to turn them into people pickers. But I didnt realise I had to remove the fields from the data connection and re add them.)


Much appreciated all
