Sharepoint column type "Location"

Søren Holmriis 1 Reputation point

Hi Tech,
I have a Sharepoint list that contain the Column type "Location".
I need to find a way to make this data intry available in the "Edit" view.
So far I can only edit this Column in function "Edit in Grid view".

When I open the "power App" to modify the "Edit view" of the Data Entry, column type "Location" is not showing up as well.

I hope you can help out on this one.

    Hi @Søren Holmriis ,

    Welcome to the Q&A Forums.

    I've not attempted to use this column type before with PowerApps so I can only link to a post from a well-known community member who noted several years ago that this particular column as yet isn't compatible with Power Apps. I think this is to do with the data type utilising the Bing API but I can't comment experientially on that sadly.

    It's by default. In the PowerApps, data source for the list does not recognize the Location column but recognizes related columns such as Country/Region, State, City, Postal Code and Street.

    You could make the suggestion in the feedback portal.
