Filtering a gallery by user using the app stopped working ( using person type column in SP list)



I have a gallery that is filltered according to the user using the app.


A few weeks ago, my filtering worked without any issues, but since this year the filtering on my app has been giving some issues. The filtering code for the gallery is:

OnStart: Set(varUserName , User().FullName)

Items of gallery: Filter(Data, Manager.DisplayName = varUserName )

where Data is the SP list and Manager the person type column in the SP list.


The User().FullName used to display a value of: Surname, Name (N), but now it displays Name Surname resulting in the filtering not to work anymore. The Manager.DisplayName has a value of Surname, Name (N).


Is anyone else experiencing this issue? How can I work around this issue? And why did this value change?


Thanks for the help.


Kind regards,
