Still fairly new to PowerApps and the filter on my gallery is confounding me. I want to filter the items in the list based on the user. So when Johnny Enduser gets into the app, the Browse screen only shows him his items in the list. That is working fine:
Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email)
Now I want to modify my filter so that it excludes items where the Completed checkbox is true. What's getting me is that my Completed column doesn't always appear in the formula builder. That tells me that I must not be building my formula correctly. How do I build this filter? It's simply called "Completed" and it's a yes/no checkbox. Based on what I've found online, shouldn't I be able to tack onto my existing filter with additional criteria?
Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email) && If('Completed' = true)
Clearly I'm doing something wrong.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you put a label in the gallery and it returns ... true, then your formula should be Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email) && 'Completed'=true), If the label returns yes then you will need to modify the formula. to Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email) && 'Completed'="yes")
My label returns true/false. Is there an open paren missing? Should it be:
Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email) && ('Completed'="true")
Also, I only want it to show records where Completed = False (or incomplete). So that would be:
Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email) && ('Completed'="false")
That doesn't work. It says the name isn't valid, but it's a label I manually added, so I know it is. And the label is displaying the correct values of true/false where appropriate. I have found other discussions where trying to filter on a true/false checkbox is a little gimpy, but people seem to have found success with filtering on false. Since that's what I want to do, I'm hoping it is achievable if I can write my formula correctly. Are there other ways to write it besides the one above?
Filter('List Name','Created By'.Email=User().Email && CompletedLabel="false")
