Distinct from sharepoint list returning multiple columns

I'm using this to populate a gallery and it's fine:

Distinct('The List', TheUserId)

which populates a gallery item text with:

ThisItem.Result (as it only contains TheUserId).

 

but I'd like to display more than one piece of information in the gallery for each result:

'The List'.TheUserId

'The List'.TheUserName

 

is there a way for ThisItem.Result to have access to multiple columns from the list?

hi @codebrane i think GroupBy('The List', TheUserId,SomeColumnName) will be best if you need added columns but maybe there is another way, i will keep my eye on this.

the gallery will have ThisItem.TheUserId and First(thisItem.omeColumnName).TheUserName  

Or have alook a tthis if this is more what you llooking for: Solved: Make a distinct with many columns (like in SQL) - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

hope it helps

I can do it using another query in the gallery item:

 

First(Filter( 'The List', TheUserId = ThisItem.Result)).TheUserName
