Model Driven Apps - Get Logged in User

Hi team, I am trying to get the current logged in user email / full name on model driven apps to compare it with a certain field on a CDS entity. Requirement - a user submits a report and says my managers email address / name is "X" (over riding manager field on user level); then the user "X" should be able to see that report. Is this possible. Thanks

Re: Model Driven Apps - Get Logged in User

Hi @AbhayKacker ,

 

User function is avaible in canvas app, could you please try to embed a canvas app on the model-driven form, then get the current user information using User function?
