Choice Fields not showing as available field

I added a Post to the forum about a Chopice field not being available as an option for adding to an App created from scratch.

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Forum/Choice-Fields-not-showing-as-an-option/m-p/11841...

 

Scenario: Create new App from scratch.  Add a SharePoint list as the datasource. Add a Gallery Item and bind it to the datasource.  The field that si defined as a Choice datatype is not shown as an available field.

 

Here is the list of fields in my SharePoint list.

This is what I see after adding the gallery and binding it to the datasource.  notice that the 'Client Status' feild is not showing as an option to choose.

Let me know if you need any other details for this.

You can however reference the choice field using the formula bar. Example: ThisItem.ChoiceList.Value

Upvoted. It is disappointing that PowerApps doesn't have full support for all types of SharePoint fields, especially now that it is in GA. C'mon Microsoft!

Just came across this today when experimenting with PowerApps. Is there a list somewhere of limitations like this in PowerApps?

What are the options when "ThisItem.ChoiceList.Value" doesn't work.  I have 5 of 6 of these working.
