PowerApp new form doesn't allow multiple people selection


I have a created new PowerApps form to enter new data to SharePoint list. In the SharePoint list, I have created People group column with multiple selection. But in PowerApps when I select and enter people data, I can enter maximum one person data. If I enter more than one, the previous person value gets overwritten automatically. Basically even with multiple option selected, it is allowing single selection via PowerApps.

I don't face this issue when I use New form form provided by SharePoint by default. PowerApps form properties are locked to SharePoint list.

Any inputs or solutions how to fix this?

Re: PowerApp new form doesn't allow multiple people selection

Hi @AKB_2K19 ,

I've made a similar test but not met the same problem.

Please check these points:

Set the card's UpDate: DataCardValue3.SelectedItems

Set the combox box's SelectMultiple:true

If the problem hasn't been solved, could you show me your settings about the combo box and update?

Giving me the formulas will be better.
