Fill Dropdown if based on current User

Is it possible to fill a Dropdown field (SP) just by the Current User?

 

My intention is that when certain users open my powerapp, they each get certain dorpdowns.

 

example:

Person:                    Dropdown 1                   Dropdown 2

abc.email.com         Accountant                    dropdown option 1

xyz.email.com          CEO                               dropdown option 1

123.email.com         Accounant                     dropdown option 2

 

Thanks in edvance 

Sorry for my bad English

It sounds like you want to have certain default dropdown choices appear for specific users?

If so, make a table similar to the one in your original post with the user's email and then columns for each dropdown's default value. Then, your app can use a LookUp() based on User().Email to pull in the correct default value. For example, in the Default property of Dropdown1 you could put:

LookUp(dropdownTable, user = User().Email, Dropdown1)
// where dropdownTable is the table of dropdown defaults stored by user email
// user is the column with the user emails
// Dropdown1 is the column containing the desired default value to use for Dropdown1 in the app

Hope that helps,

Bryan
