Filtering list by currrent user not working

I am just looking for what I thought would be a simple way of filtering by logged on user. I found this page that said to create a data connection to Office 365 users and add the following but it is not working. I am not married to the this current way of doing it so if you can suggest a better way to it please let me know.

 

This is suppose to get my profile display name and ensure that it equals the field in Officer Name showing only my entries into the system.

 

SortByColumns(Filter('Individual-Time', Office365Users.MyProfile().DisplayName = Officer_x0020_Name, StartsWith(ComplianceAssetId, TextSearchBox1.Text)), "ComplianceAssetId", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))

Re: Filtering list by currrent user not working

Hi msmith,

 

Please take my code for a reference.

 

In my list, there is a Person or Group column named “Approved by”. I created connections to both SharePoint list and Office 365 users.

 

On the gallery, set the Items property of the gallery as:

SortByColumns(Filter(List1,Office365Users.MyProfile().DisplayName=Approved_x0020_By_x003f_.DisplayName),"Title",If(SortDescending1,Descending,Ascending))

 

Then only the items that the display name of column “Approved by” are equal to current user’s will be shown on the app.

 

Please try it on your side and feel free reply if you need more help.

 

Best regards,

Here is a capture of what happens. I must just have this in the wrong format or something.

Re: Filtering list by currrent user not working

Hi msmith,

 

What’s the column type of “Officer_x0020_Name”? Is it a Person or Group column or a Text column?


If it is a Person or Group column, you may configure it likes Officer_x0020_Name.DisplayName, while if it is a Text column, Officer_x0020_Name should be ok.


Please try it on your side.
