Combo Box populated with values from user list in SharePoint List

 Hello everyone,

 

I am writing an app where I like to let users choose an approver for a particular item.  I have a list of approvers in a "Person or Group" field in Sharepoint.  I created a screen with a combo box in where I filter a list trying to display names of the people, but I can't get it to display.  Here is what I tried.

 

I put this in my "Items" property

First(Filter('Admin', Title = "HR Managers")).Personel.DisplayName 

 

Admin -- is the name of the Sharepoint List

"HR Managers" -- Is the filter for the row I am looking for

Personel -- Is the column where a list of people I like to display in the combo box

 

I also tried to cteate a collection and then addres it in the simmilar matter, but collection it still does not work.  Nothing shows up in the combo box.

 

Thank you in advance!

Leon.

Re: Combo Box populated with values from user list in SharePoint List

You can use Choices(ListName.ColumnName) to get the list back in the combo box.  The easier way to do this is to put a form on your screen and use the Item property to pass over the record you want to edit or make the form a New form.  The people picker will automatically work for you in the form.  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/working-with-forms
