Access Contact ParentCustomerId

I am working on a canvas app that connects to an instance of dynamics. I am searching and displaying a list of contacts in a gallery. When I try to display the parentcustomerid or 'Company Name' or _parentcustomerid_value I only get a guid. Is there any way to get the actual name of the account?

Hi @Anonymous 

Could you tell me is 'Company Name' a lookup field?

Since it’s not supported to display the data of lookup field from dynamics directly, you should filter it by yourself.

Try this formula:

LookUp(Accounts,account=ThisItem.'Company Name',account name)

Here’s doc about the Contact entity for your reference:
