Have the option to retrieve first and last name of a user via User()

Can we have the ability to select a user's first and last name instead of gettng full name?

 

I need this for the form that I use in SharePoint which can get the data and fill it automatically but not via the app.

 

The app can only get the logged in user's full user name via User().FullName. Options like "First name", "Last name" etc. would be awesome to have. 

 

Thanks

I think you can achieve this using the Office 365 Users connection.

 

Office365Users.MyProfile().GivenName

Office365Users.MyProfile().Surname

 If(Form1.Mode = FormMode.New, Office365Users.UserProfile(User().Email).DisplayName,Parent.Default)
