Hi, 

 

I have an email column in SharePoint with data property as string will it be possible for my filter to read this as a Office365Users.UserProfileV2.  Goal is to show this as Display name in my drop down, is this even possible?

 

Any guides & ideas will be appreciated.

Hi @RandyHayes,

 

Both PersonDropDownColAll and PersonDropDownCol are colletions. These collection contains below:

 

PersonDropDownCol, {Result: "All Users"} and I added this to my PersonDropDownColALL so that this will be the first item in my dropbox.

 

My GalleryDataCol is basically my collection from Source SharePoint list.

 

Yes, I am trying to populate the dropdown with the display names of users in the gallery.

Excellent...almost there.  One final question then (actually two).  What is the name of your Gallery and what is the name of the column in your Gallery (the datasource field name) that contains the User?  (okay three questions) And to be clear, the column that contains the user is a single email address?

Please clarify any of the above.

Hi @RandyHayes ,

 

My gallery name is 'Department Activity List' that pass to my GalleryDataCol. The field or column name is Users and columns contains two or more email address separated by ";" no spaces.

Sorry for delay...trying to catch up on all the posts.  Are you still experiencing issues that you need help with?

Wow...SO sorry to drop this again.  I handle so many posts on this forum and they get lost on me sometimes.  Yours slipped by me again.  

Are you still stuck on this?  If so, post back and I will make sure it goes to my priority list.

Hi Randy, yeah I am still stuck on this. Currently I am showing email text in my gallery (from my SharePoint). I wish I will be able to show this as O365 Name and Last Name.

So where are we on this?  We were originally trying to set a Dropdown list.  Is that still the case?  You mention now something a bit different - "show O365 Name and Last Name".
