Gallery Not Able to Display Office 365 Profile data from Sharepoint List

So, I'm making a PowerApp for a Sharepoint List. The Sharepoint list has o365 profile fields. For some reason, when I make a gallery on my home screen to show a summary of the items in the Sharepoint list, all of the fields are there except the user profile fields. They aren't even options. They don't seem to load.

 

 

However, on a new item page I'm using a Form which is able to display, and accept entry for the User Profile fields. Any ideas why the Form can accept these fields, and recognizes them, but the gallery does not?

Re: Gallery Not Able to Display Office 365 Profile data from Sharepoint List

Gallery currently does not display complex fields right away while making an app from data. That's a known issue.

 

You could however add controls inside the gallery and set them up to display your complex field.

 

e.g. If the complex data is of name "Profile" and is a Person type and it contains fields like Name, Email etc...

you can create TextBox controls to display this information

 

TextBox1.Default = Profile.Name

TextBox2.Default = Profile.Email

 

and so on.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks
