Hi @shaneOZ ,

 

If you want to Patch one name to your Person type column in your SP list, the name should be in your O365 Group.

Add one new to your Office 365 group in your Microsoft 365 admin center:

Then Patch the name from PowerApps to SP list's Person type column:

Hope this could be helpful.

 

Best Regards.

Table({Id: 6, Value: : {DisplayName:"Shane Francis",
  Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|shane.francis@ozmining.com.au", 
  Department:"",  
  Email:"shane.francis@ozmining.com.au", 
  JobTitle:"", 
  Picture:""})

and that did not work
