Hm. Interesting challenge. Thanks for posting. 


How about an IF statement like this: 


  • Text box named "searchTerm"
  • Gallery named "gallery1"
  • Label in gallery1 named "emailAddy"
    • Text Property of emailAddy:
    • If(
          "" in ThisItem.Mail,

If you're using a Combobox Control to search, you might also mess with the DisplayFields and SearchFields Properties. I bet you can set an IF statement similar to the above that will filter directly at the search Control rather than at the display Control.

Re: Filtering people picker

Hi @Anonymous,


Do you want to filter the Person type column of SP list within your app when you select a person from the People picker control?


If you want to filter out the person whose email contains '' when you select/search person within the People picker control (Combo box control), I have made a test on my side, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
