Power Apps Patch is easy – Day 6 Person fields

Today’s learning on Patch is important as it relates to Person fields which are more similar than you might think. They are highly relevant to Patching to Sharepoint lists as they help us to maintain the ties to related lists.

Structure for Patching to a Person Field

The basic structure for patching to a person field is as follows – where cmbOwner is a combo box where a user is selected:-

Patch(
    List, 
    Defaults(List),
    {
      Title: "New Title Value",  
      Person: {
            Claims: cmbOwner.Selected.Claims,
            Department: cmbOwner.Selected.Department,
            DisplayName: cmbOwner.Selected.DisplayName,
            Email: cmbOwner.Selected.Email,
            JobTitle: cmbOwner.Selected.JobTitle,
            Picture: cmbOwner.Selected.Picture
        }
   }
