It appears that currently "Person or Group" columns in SP are not supported by PowerApps. Is support for this column type on the roadmap?
I'd be interested to know this as well.
Yes and the ability to auto populate work email, phone, department, etc
There should also be a choice to auto-fill the field with the login of the current user.
@PaulF Use the funcion <<User().FullName>> to select the current user. i use this function to display hello for the current user.
I created a powerapps based off a list, and the people column works.
How did you get it to work? It does show up on a form but when I am trying to edit the form and save it, it gives me an error List data validation failed.
The way I tested was to create a list in SP, then click the create powerapp from list button on the list itself. At least in this case the picker just worked. I have not tried to add a list as a datasource to an app I started from scratch.
Will this work for external users who email or only internal? I want to create a Flow where my internal users can forward an email to a shared mailbox and most of the contact info can auto-populate. Will this planned functionality service this requirement?
