Filter Officer365Users by department

Hi,

 

I would like to include in the people picker users that match some departments only but I'm unable to do so 

I tried to use 

Filter(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:PeoplePicker_3.SearchText}),!IsBlank(JobTitle)&&!IsBlank(Mail)&&!IsBlank(Department)&&
("AB Department" in Department ||
"BC Department" in Department ||

"XY Department" in Department
)
)

 

But no luck. Any idea what I'm doing wrong. It is working if I only include one department in the filter

I tried with this. It is working now Filter(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:ComboBox1.SearchText}),"AB" in Department || "CD" in Department || "DE" in Department || "FG" in Department)

Please see if this syntax works.

Filter(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:PeoplePicker_3.SearchText}),!IsBlank(JobTitle)&&!IsBlank(Mail)&&!IsBlank(Department)&&
Department in ["AB Department", "BC Department", "XY Department"]

)

I tried it out successfully on my end.  I must have keyed something in wrong.  I made a button that created a collection with similar structure below

 

ClearCollect(colEmployees, Table({Name: "Joe", Title: "Manager", Department: "A"}, {Name: "Mary", Title: "Director", Department: "B"}, {Name: "Tom", Title: "Manager", Department: "C"}, {Name: "Joe", Title: "Manager", Department: "C"}))

 

And then Filtered it in a gallery.

 

Filter(colEmployees, !IsBlank(Name) && !IsBlank(Title) && Department in ["A", "B"])

 

Regards,

Pat

My data connection is to Office365Users and filtering the users using that. Not using a gallery

Any idea how to filter within my data source

I tried with this. It is working now Filter(Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:ComboBox1.SearchText}),"AB" in Department || "CD" in Department || "DE" in Department || "FG" in Department)

 

 

Seem the issue was there was a spelling mistake when naming the department. That's why it was not working before. Thanks for the help @mahoneypat
