Default user for Office365Users.SearchUser search

In my app I'm searching for users within my org based on text from a label in my app. If there is no text in label it defaults to a user and I want to be able to control which user it defaults to.

 

Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:SMEHiddenKey.Text, top:1})

 

SMEHiddenKey is the label that is being searched.

 

Any thoughts on how to change the default?

Hi @UnitedLexAdmin ,

 

Use If(!IsBlank(SMEHiddenKey.Text),Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:SMEHiddenKey.Text,top:1})) as Items Property for your gallery

Hi @UnitedLexAdmin 

 

Add an if statement to check if the label is blank, if yes do not query search users

Thanks, @RezaDorrani .

 

I'm fairly new to this and I'm having a hard time creating the statement. This is what I got so far:

 

If(IsBlank(SMEHiddenKey), Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:SMEHiddenKey.Text, top:1}))

This is throwing all sorts of errors, so I'm sure I'm messing something up.

Do not worry, PowerApps is fun and easy

 

Assuming you are using this formula on the Text property of a Label control, then the below should work

 

If(IsBlank(SMEHiddenKey.Text),"",First(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:SMEHiddenKey.Text,top:1})).DisplayName)

 

If you are using this formula on some other control property, please let me know

@RezaDorrani  Thanks for helping out. I'm using this in a gallery under the Items property. I tried your formula and there is an error.

 

Thanks!

Re: Default user for Office365Users.SearchUser search

Hello! Quick question. I'm doing something similar and wondering what is it inside the parentheses of your search term. Is that the group of O365 Users you're trying to pull from?

 

I am trying to use a combo-box to create a People-Picker from a specific group using O365 Users as a connector. 

 

If the group of users in my O365 Users is called "testGroup" , AND my combo-box for my people-picker is called "testComboBox" , would this be the correct syntax for code? There are no errors when I input this code, but the combo-box isn't pulling up any results in my form. Thank you!

 

 

 

 

Sort(
    Office365Users.SearchUser(
        If(
            IsBlank(testComboBox.SearchText),
            {searchTerm: "testGroup"},
            {searchTerm: testComboBox.SearchText}
        )
    ),
    Surname
)
