When using the Microsoft PowerApps Data Card to add data from a table or list, you have the option to use “property assignment” instead of simply inserting column values. Property assignment lets you insert properties and their values into the data card instead of just inserting column values directly into the card. For example, You may want to insert the Department property with a value of Finance in one cell, and then insert a Name property with a value of John Smith in another cell. This blog post will explain the powerapps format date what property assignment is, why it’s particularly useful when working with data cards, how it works, and some common pitfalls to avoid during your first few attempts at assigning properties.
