Working with SharePoint Choice columns in Power Apps
Learn to work with SharePoint Choice columns in Power Apps. We cover everything! Single and multi-choice columns because they are wildly different in Power Apps. We talk about displaying them in a gallery and then filtering that gallery by them. Then we take a peek at how they are easy with Forms. Boring. Then we jump into Patch where we really get into the nuance of this column type. Records vs. tables and how that affects Patch, Dropdowns, Combo boxes, and more. This video goes from simple to complex and everything in between.
