Hi Gautmish,

What data source are you using?

If it's a SharePoint data source and if NextApprover and NextApproverBU are Person fields, these types of queries can not be made delegable.

Here's a post with more details and some workarounds.

Hi @gautmish ,

Could you please share a bit more about the data source ('Creditcardapplication') that you mentioned? Is it a SP list?

Are the NextApprover, NextApproverBU columns both Person type column in your SP list?

Further, could you please share a bit more about the Delegation issue within your app?


If you want to get rid the Delegation warning issue within your formula, I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround (if the amount of the data source records is not more than 2000😞

Set the OnVisible property of the first screen of your app to following:

ClearCollect(RecordsCollection, Creditcardapplication)

then modify your SortByColumns formula as below:

And(Or(Lower( NextApprover.Email)=Lower( User().Email),Lower( NextApproverBU.Email)=Lower( User().Email)),And(FinalStatus<>"Approved",FinalStatus<>"Rejected"))

Please take a try with the above solution, then check if the issue is solved.
