How do I display the value of the Attendees field and/or Created by field from a SharePoint Calendar into a Powerapps label?

I see no 'people' columns but all other columns seem to be available.

SOLVED

FYI - 'Attendees' is a default column of 'People and Group' type and is included when you create an OOB SharePoint Calendar (Event content type). 

I changed the settings of this field to 'No' for allowing multiple people.

 

And then I found a way to get the value to display by manually adding the following fx (it still was not displaying in the drop down from the powerapps data connection):

 

ThisItem.'Attendees'.DisplayName

 

The created by field can also be displayed: ThisItem.'Created By'.DisplayName

Re: How do I display the value of the Attendees field and/or Created by field from a SharePoint Calendar into a Powerapps label?

Based on your use of the word "attendees" I am surmising this is a multi-value person column.  Since a label is only designed to hold a single value, PowerApps does not see your multi-valued field as a viable source for your label.  If you use a list or gallery control instead of a label to hold the people, I suspect you will see the field show up.

 

If you really need to display it in a label, you'll need to first concatenate the text of the names in a single variable that you can then use with the label.
