How to Set a SharePoint Person Column

PowerApps Set a SharePoint Person column to Default to the User enables users to set a SharePoint Person column in a PowerApps Form to default to the user who is currently logged in.

This allows users to quickly select their name as the person to assign tasks, submit forms, and track changes without having to type in their name. The feature is available in PowerApps forms and is simple to set up. To enable this feature, you need to go to the PowerApps form and select the Person column. Then, in the Advanced tab, select "Set to Default to Current User" and click Save. This will ensure that the Person column is populated with the user's name automatically.

What is a SharePoint Persona Column

In SharePoint, a Person column is a type of column that allows you to specify a person or group of people as a value in a list or library. This type of column is useful when you need to keep track of who is responsible for a specific task, who has contributed to a document, or who is the point of contact for a particular project.

When you add a Person column to a SharePoint list or library, you can specify the type of information that you want to capture, such as the person’s name, email address, or other contact information. You can also choose to allow multiple people to be selected for the column, or restrict it to a single person.

Once the Person column is added to your list or library, you can use it in views, forms, and workflows to help manage and track your data. For example, you can create a view that shows all items in the list or library that are assigned to a particular person, or use a workflow to send an email to the person specified in the column when a new item is added to the list.
