How to set a defaul value for a person fields in a SharePoint list?

Hi

 

I have an app and want to set a default value on a person field in PowerApps. The datasource is a simple SharePoint Online list with a person field in it. I know how to write the JSON to represent the person, but i am unsure on how to handle the field tile correctly.

 

Anyone knows how to achieve this easy?

Re: How to set a defaul value for a person fields in a SharePoint list?

Hi @HeikoHa,

Do you want to set a Default value for the Person field in the Edit form of your app?

The user @Brice235i has faced same issue with you please check the response within the following thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Creating-Apps/Set-the-default-value-of-person-lookup-to-current-...

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:7.JPG

Set the DefaultSelectedItems property of the ComboBox control within the Executor Data card to following:

If(
    EditForm1.Mode=FormMode.New,
    {
        DisplayName: User().FullName,
        Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower(User().Email)
    },
    Parent.Default
)

On your side, you should type:

If(
    EditForm1.Mode=FormMode.New,
    {
        DisplayName: "The display name of the user you want to set as default",
        Claims: "i:0#.f|membership|" & Lower("The email address of the user you want to set as default")
    },
    Parent.Default
)
