Get author info before the author saves list

I want to get the author info(Name, Email..) before the author saves the list. And want to show different option and input column per person or department the author belong to.

Is it possible? If not possible, If I let the author push button or something in the edit page, can I get such info in that edit page?

I think that PowerApps saves automatically to SharePoint the author and the modifier info when the list is saved as "Choices([@XXXXX].Author)", but I don't know how to get those data before saving the list.

Hi @Kenjoy84 ,

Power Apps has the built-in functions User().FullName and User().Email, which will return these values for the person logged in.

You can also us the Office365Users connector (you have to add this in Data Sources) for instance, the user's Department is

Office365Users.UserProfile(User().Email).Department

Is this what you are referring to?
