Multi-select drop down for an entity whose values are fetched from other entities

I want to have multi-select drop down for an entity whose values are fetched from other entities in Model-based PowerApps.

Dropdown controls cannot be multselect. You need to use a combobox control. Ref https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/controls/control-combo-box

I need it for the model-based PowerApps. Do you recommend anything?

The multi-select options is a new control in the Dynamics 365 CE and have new features,  however, the control is an option set, only a list of items that you can select more than one option. 

 

the following is the documentation, I have not tested, but I think this could be applicable to the CDS and Modal Driven apps. 

 

Documentation for Multi-Select OptionSet

 

hope this helps

Is there a way, where multi-select values are fetched from entities rather than optionset?

Out of the box the Multi select field type in the CDS and Dynamics 365 CE are only working with Option Sets, and your escenario will be creating a entity with the values related or not related to the source entity, that will just list the options and make the relationships. 

 

hope this help.
