prefilled logged in user

hey guys,

i created a holiday request. It works fine, but i want to take the next step...

The fields are based on sharepoint list. The column "proposer" is defined as person/group. Is it possible to prefill the field "proposer" in power apps? At this time it´s only possible to search your own name in this field.

I am grateful for every tip.



I give you some screenshots about my settings...

Only the prefilled field "proposer" is not transferred to sharepoint.

Maybe you can give me an advice





I think I have a guess what happened ... Changing the "Items" property on the User dropdown probably "disconnected" it from the submit form. You may need to change that back to whatever it was. (I think first we changed the "Defaults" property for that dropdown, and you said the name wasn't showing up, so then we changed the "Items" property as well). If you change the "Items" property back, it should (hopefully) re-link to your submit button. 


(I still think the "Defaults" property should be the only thing you need to make the name show up in the box, and we can work on that if it stops working.) 

i gave up... i can´t transfer the prefilled logged in user to sharepoint...

finally i got it.


this formula for "default selelcted items" does the right thing


{ DisplayName:User().FullName; Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(User().Email); Email: User().Email; Picture:"" } 


It´s explained in this video:
