Create Dropdown list from logged in User Outlook

I'm just wondering if it's possible to create a dropdown list of email contacts that are available to my Apps' logged in user?

 

Usage: I have an app where the user can email some data to themselves. I want them to have the option to email this same data to others. These 'others' maybe internal or external contacts (so not all will be in our enterprise Office365 contacts list). I guess it would act similar to the auto-complete cache in Outlook?

 

Is there a way to do this?

 

Cheers

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Did you mean that you want to show the contact lists from local Outlook? If so, then I'm afraid that this is not possible currently as there is no such data source for PowerApps. 

 

You can get all the users' emails from Office 365 Users connection though. Please check to see if this could meet your requirement:

@v-monli-msft thanks Mona. I am wanting the first option so I'll just go with a Plan B ie users will create, over time, their own 'contacts list' which I'll store in a separate data source.

 

Thanks again for the reply.

 

Cheers
