Employee ID text field

I have a need to pull in an employee id.  In infopath, we used eval()AccountId.  I know that is not an option with PowerApps; is there an alternative option?

 

If not, I do show the Employee ID in the Outlook contact card under Outlook property - Alias.  Could I alternatively create a flow from the PowerApp to retrieve the text from the Outlook property?

You can add Office365 Users connection and then use Office365Users.UserProfile("useremail-id@test.com").Id

 

Hope this helps!
