I want to lookup the current users User().FullName when an app is opened and then auto populate a dropdown field with this value that can be edited is needed?

Hi @Anonymous,

 

This could be achieved. For example, I have a Excel table named Table1 with 2 columns: Created By and TicketID. I have Default property of Created By column as: User().FullName.

 

Insert a dropdown control, and set its Items property to

Filter(Table1, Created_x0020_By = User().FullName)

Set its Value property to TicketID, then the dropdown pick list would be shown with the TicketID columns that has created by current user.
