I don't know why the people picker field is not setting the values of an item in the edit form, i can see that the column has a value when i see the properties of the item but when i try to edit the item the people picker is just empty.

Someone knows what this is happening?

  • What is the value you are setting in the people picker field? Name or Email or ....?
