Create Navigation Button to Specific Screen within a Gallery


I am attempting to create an app that is probably quite advanced for my PowerApps expertise... so any help is appreciated!


I am creating 2 screens. 


First screen is the landing page in which I the user selects their Name from a dropdown box.

Idea is that once they hit "Submit" - it would navigate to their specific folder. 


The second screen is an interactive Document Library off Sharepoint, which I have used the below for OnSelect

If(ThisItem.IsFolder,Set(varCurrentPath,ThisItem.'Folder path'&ThisItem.Name&"/")


Is there a way for the user to automatically go to their selected name folder?


Thanks so much!

Hi @sd_sport ,


Maybe you do not need the Drop Down Control.

The User function returns a record of information about the current user:


If you want users to be able to see their folders, maybe you could try as follows:


1. Here is my Document Library.


2. Here is my App.

Gallery1->Items property:

Filter(Documents,'Folder path'="Shared Documents/StudentDL/"&User().FullName&"/")

Gallery1->Title1(Label Control)->Text property:

ThisItem.'File name with extension'

Gallery1->Subtitle1(Label Control)->Text property:

ThisItem.'Folder path'

Gallery2->Items property:

Filter(Documents,'Folder path'="Shared Documents/StudentDL/"&User().FullName&"/"&Gallery1.Selected.Name&"/")


In addition, here is a link that might help you:



Best Regards,
