ComboBox - default value taken from AD organisation

Hello,

 

How can I make a combobox (drop-down) that will have default value with a manager from AAD organisation.

 

Problem:

I have a dropdown box that I use to pick a person from a list. You need to search in this dropdown or write in it to find your manager.

I want to have this dropdown with default value direct manager from 365 organisation.

 

How can that be achieved?

Also if someone change this default value is it possible to detect it and shows another field - why you changed it?

@Elitezone To change the visibility you can use the formula something like below:

 

 

Not(ComboBox1.Selected.DisplayName = Office365Users.Manager(User().Email).DisplayName)

 

OR

Not(ComboBox1.Selected.Mail = Office365Users.Manager(User().Email).Mail)

Set this formula to Visible property of your input box. Where ComboBox1 is the name of your combobox/dropdown control.

Thank you, but what about a second part of question, how to make an if statement with this data.

I want to make a input text with visibility that will appear only if someone change his manager.

 

I tried something like that:

If(ComboBox1.Selected.Mail = Office365Users.Manager(User().Email),false,true)

but it shows invalid argument type. 

Try

If(ComboBox1.Selected.Mail = Office365Users.Manager(User().Email).Mail,false,true)

Not(ComboBox1.Selected.DisplayName = Office365Users.Manager(User().Email).DisplayName)
