How to display departments related to current user.

On my app I am trying to display the current users department by default. On the app that department field is a combo box. Originally in SharePoint that field is a choice field with choices (SITE,WORKS,OFFICE), On the apps is there a way to default it to the current users department. I've already tried with using Office365Users.MyProfile().Department, but it comes out as an error.

@SandraAkujobi, I see the issue. You are using a text type when it expects a record.

 

Simply put it in brackets:

[Office365Users.MyProfileV2().department]

Just to make sure, your organization has Department properties on the profiles?

 

This is the correct way to get department as you stated:

Office365Users.MyProfileV2().department

 

What is the error you are getting?

@DylanSimons I've tried that in field datacard default function and the defaultselecteditems in the datacard.

You can see from the image below there under the formula box it displays the department but I'm unsure why it comes out as an error.

Use:

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

@eka24 I've tried this as well in all both field datacard and combobox default function as well as the defaultselecteditems. Would the issue be because the field is a choice field.
