Add Help Text Field to DataCard

Hello,   I would like to see the ability to add help text to a data card that would appear as items were floated over.  And even better yet to have that data card auto populated in the case of SharePoint integrated PowerApps forms, from the description field of a list column item.  Thx.

Re: Add Help Text Field to DataCard

You may take a try with tooltip property of the DataField control under PowerApps:

Quoted:

"

Tooltip – Explanatory text that appears when the user hovers over a control.

"

More reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/controls/properties-core

 

Field description currently is not available in PowerApps, there is an idea on this:

Fetch Sharepoint Field Description and use it in Powerapps

Thanks for that Rommel.  For some reason I was not seeing that Tooltip column.    I also upvoted the idea to add the description from the SharePoint List column at the link you included.
