Filter Gallery Based on Two Names in ComboBox

I've got a ComboBox1 and Gallery1.

The Gallery autopopulates based on the choice made in the ComboBox.

The Gallery has the following in the Items: 
          Filter(SchedulerDetailsListCollection,TechnicianName in ComboBox2.SelectedItems)



There is now the desire to choose more than one Technician on new reports. The Gallery1 shows that historical data.

There is now the need to be able to recall to the Gallery all reports where either of the two names in the ComboBox appear.

Can I keep and amend the current formula to say:
       Do what you are doing now (return data based on the default name or single name chosen; AND if a second name is chosen

       return only and all reports where both names appear in the 'TechnicianName' column? 

        Filter(SchedulerDetailsListCollection,TechnicianName in ComboBox2.SelectedItems)




First to clarify, first you said " either of the two names in the ComboBox appear" then " where both names appear in the 'TechnicianName' column" is it either, or both.

and what type of column is the TechnicianName Column?

1. ComboBox1 needs to default to logged in user on app open
    1a. Done
          1b. ComboBox DefaultSelectedItems =  [User().FullName]
                1c. ComboBox Items = Sort('Employee List'.Title,Title)

2. Gallery needs to auto-populate based on the default name in ComboBox1.
    2a. Done
          2b. Gallery performs as desired for default or single name enter from search of ComboBox
               Filter(SchedulerDetailsListCollection, TechnicianName in ComboBox2.SelectedItems.Title)

3. Need to be able to update ComboBox formula so that when a second Technician is chosen in ComboBox1 the Gallery1 will auto-populate content where BOTH technician's names appear in the 'TechnicianName' column of the SP list. If the two names do not appear in the SP list 'TechnicianName' column in any same line item the Gallery remains blank.

4. Gallery data coming from 'SchedulerDetailsListCollection', which has 'TechnicianName' as a column. Both names can appear on a single line item in this column in this list.

The ComboBox is getting is data from the 'EmployeeList'. None of the technicians names appear together in this list, though they do all appear in the 'Title' column individually.

Will your datasource stay below 2k items so delegation isn't an issue? trying to think of the best way to do this

COul you possibly show me an example of a sharepoint list record where the column has two techs in it  (just that single column is fine) just want to see how they are laid out (is that column single line text, multiline text, choice column, etc)

SPList/Collection: Scheduler Detail List
Column Name: 'TechnicianName'
Type: Single line of text
Appears as: First Name Last Name, First Name Last Name


Will it only ever be two technicians at most selected?

Man, you must be psychic!

I was literally asking myself that question when your reply came through.😂

Fact, I don't know.

The request was "There are times when there could be two technicians on the same job".

Going with no more than two.

If that does end up beign case, theres only two options for how your data could appear in that columns either First Tech, Second Tech or Second Tech, First Tech so I think most delegation friendly method would be to do a filter based on that column equaling possible outcome 1 or equaling possible outcome 2


and then prevent more than 2 selections by putting a count of the items selected or something and maybe like disable the control after 2 are selected, and have a 2 max selected click here to reset the combobox type message below it or something
