Filter Gallery by Date from Sharepoint List, and Search by Lookup field

I have managed to get this to work with my sharepoint list but, this will be used as a daily tracker and the gallery needs only to display items that are for the current day.

SortByColumns(Filter(Tracker, StartsWith("Coach",TextSearchBox1.Text)), "Date", If(SortDescending1, Ascending, Descending))



Date              3/6/2017 - Date value from date picker

Manager       Person    - selected from lookup of another sharepoint list

Coach           Person    - selected from lookup of another sharepoint list

Sales            Text entry


I need the end user to be able to see only items created "Today" and  search for entries that match the Manager coloum.


Thank you,

Nate K


Hi @Nkilgor,


Please take a try with the following:

Filter(Tracker,IsToday(Date), startswith(AAL.DisplayName, TextSearchBox1.Text))

There would be warnings when using this formula, but you should be able to see the filtered results.


Adding the function reference:

StartsWith function in PowerApps

Thanks, it does not create any syntax errors, but it does not return any results when searching.
