Sharepoint List ID instead of full name



I have a people dropdown on my SharePoint list. When I import the list to power BI the full name of the person doesn't show up I get two columns with numbers only


Project Manager ID

Project Manager StringID


How can I make the numbers return full name text just like in SharePoint?

@karlagb20 ,


I could not reproduce your issue. Could you share more details?

Re: Sharepoint List ID instead of full name

I am facing the same issue. One column of my Sharepoint list is "Owner". When I connect the List to PowerBI, I obtain 2 columns: OwnerID and OwnerString. What I am trying to achieve is getting the full name so I can use slicers and create reports. Any hint?
