SharePoint columns of 'person or group'-type missing

When I connect to a SharePoint list with PowerApps I can select all the different columns to show, use and edit. Exept for columns of the 'person or group'-type (usually used to select a user in the organisation).

 

Does anybody know why those columns aren't shown, and how I can get them in PowerApps?

Hello Jean-Paul,
You are correct. With SharePoint Lists, there is support for the primitive data types like text, number, yes/no, date time when using PowerApps. Complex types such as image and people are not supported yet.
You may submit your request for this on the forum: https://aka.ms/powerapps-ideas
Thank you!

The full list of supported/un-supported SharePoint list column types is outlined here. We do currently support the 'Person or Group' column type as read-only, so it should available.  

 

Is possible, could you try again and let me know if you still can't see the 'Person or Group' column?

Sorry for the confusion. We will update the website soon. Person/Group is currently unsupported. Support for it will be coming in the future.

Re: SharePoint columns of 'person or group'-type missing

at minimum provide a method to copy multivalue persongroup string to a collection or variable so we can work with it somehow. if you can display multiple values of this type in a label it shouldn’t be a quantum leap to transfer that text on the screen to a variable. unfortunately, when i try it only grabs the first person in a multi... unless i’m doing it wrong in which case i would love to hear a solution.

Re: SharePoint columns of 'person or group'-type missing

I'm able to: 

  • Create a Sharepoint custom list with a person column
  • Click "Create App" under the PowerApps tab in Sharepoint
  • Then use the native search functionality of the person column, in a search box in my PowerApp without issue.

 

AFAIK, this is supported now.
