Metadata tag option

On my sharepoint online list, and the associated form for adding a new item, there is a field/column which is aligned to a term set.

 

In the standard form, if the item the user wants to input is not in the term set, they can click on the tags on the form and it will open the term set tree, where they can see all terms in that set, and also add one if it is not present.

 

Is there a way to add this function to a powerapps form??

 

Thanks

As of now if your list or library has a managed meta-data column type from SharePoint, our Form Control will expose the Managed Metadata Column as a Combo Box. (Try creating an app from data where a column in a list is set to a node in the Managed Metadata to see how this works.) This would provide a similar experience in that as they type in the combo box it will search through the tags for relevant choices.

 

Let me know if this is sufficient for your business scenario, or whether you'd like to achieve something outside of this current state please.

 

Thank you for your feedback and patience,

Thanks Audrie,

 

That is exactly what I have at the moment. Adding the datacard for the termset option provides me with a dropdown list type option which allows it to search the list as the user types it in.

 

My issue is though, as it is an open term set, if the term they want to enter isnt already in the term set, in the powerapps form, they have no way of adding it to the set. But they can in the standard form from SharePoint when adding an item to a list.

 

Thanks

Could you clarify more on the default drop down combo is there any customization on the properties to show the meta data as in my case it can't be retrieved in the drop down and I got error ''the function choices has some invalid arguments"

@MohammadAmer  @flyingkiwi  @Audrie-MSFT Was this ever resolved? I have the same issue and need to know if I can use Powerapps or whether I need to use the out-the-box sharepoint newform.aspx

Any update on this?
