Auto-Populate employee details

Hello Power App Community!


I'm brand spanking new to Power Apps and trying to learn as I go. One of the things that I'm trying to do is create a form that would search our O365 database and auto-populate the following fields:


Search Box to enter name/number/email 



(Uses DisplayName from O365)


(Uses City from O365)

Employee Number

(Uses MailNickname from O365)


This would then be submitted and shared to a SharePoint list. 


Any help is super appreciated!

You will want to the Office365Users connector.  Add it to your app.


Create a SharePoint list with a Person field called 'Employee'.  Then add a form to your app based on that SP List.  The user search box will appear without you having to create it.

Then you could find each piece of data by making a reference to the Employee ComboBox.  Data will only appear once you have selected a person.

Hi there add a TextBox for search and three labels


label1 text = First(Office365Users.SearchUserV2({searchTerm:TextBox.Text}).value).DisplayName

label3 text = First(Office365Users.SearchUserV2({searchTerm:TextBox.Text}).value).MailNickname
