Dropdown filter choices

Hi, I have a new form on 'PrimaryList' and want to have a dropdown where choices will come from 'UserInformationList' which only filters the Role="Staff"

 

Filter(
       Choices(UserInformationList.'FullName'),
       Value in Filter(UserInformationList,Role.Value="Staff")
       )

Please try to set the Items property of your dropdown control as below:

Filter(UserInformationList,Role="Staff").FullName

Filter(
Choices(UserInformationList.FullName);
Value in Filter(UserInformationList, Role = "Staff").Title)


I tried the code above but it's not working.

I want to filter Role="Staff" and show the fullname from userinformation list on my PrimaryList New Mode

Hi@nagestiada,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, do you want to filter FullName based on the Role column value?

Could you please tell me that if both of these two column are Choice type?

I assume that both of  these two column are Choice type, please try to set the Items property as below:

Filter(
    Choices(UserInformationList.'FullName'),
    Value in ForAll(
        Filter(
            UserInformationList,
            Role.Value = "Staff"
        ).FullName,
        FullName.Value
    )
)

Hope it could help you.

Qi

Based on the issue that you mentioned, do you want to filter FullName based on the Role column value? - Yes

Could you please tell me that if both of these two column are Choice type? - Both are not choice type, basically masterlist of all users.

 

Hi@nagestiada,

Have you tried my solution?

Could you please tell me the column type of Role and FullName and which list do they belong to ?

"I have a new form on 'PrimaryList' and want to have a dropdown where choices will come from 'UserInformationList'" This is how you describe your scenario, I guess that these Role and FullName column are all from your 'UserInformationList', is that right?

Provide more details about the Role and FullName。

Qi

Yes, the fullname and role are all from my UserInformationList. - both are single line text not choices

I have primary list which gets orders from customers and want it to assign to the name of the staff on my dropdown.

@v-qiaqi-msft thank you so much for this

 

Another question is: I want to get the email of the selected full name from the dropdown

 

email is also another column in UserInformationList. how can I lookup?

Hi@nagestiada, 

If this Email column is a Text type, please try to add a Label or TextInput and set Text/Default property as below:

LookUp(UserInformationList,FullName=ComboBox1.Selected.FullName,Email)

Note: Combo Box1 is my dropdown control.
