Sorry for the apparent newbie question but I'm a .... newbie 


My form is basically a "request" form, using Responsive mode backed by a basic SharePoint Online custom list.


One of the fields in the list is the requester's Manager, with a type of People/Group.


On the form, I can obtain the manager using "userProfileLookup("Current User(email)", "Manager") but I just dont see how I can then push this into the SharePoint field.


If use a Calculated Field it does not allow me to "Connect to" the SharePoint field as it's not listed (incompatible types I guess)... but if I use a People field and set the Default value to a formula fn-UserProfileLookUp(Current User(email),"Manager") it shows an empty text box.


I'm sure it's something really simple but I just cant see it...
