The closest way to do this is to create a list/table and create a row for everyone from office or azure and get them to update it with there details via a powerapp i needed to collect Home Address, Gender, Date of Birth, Personal Email i had the same issue you faced so i did this. I called it a census my organisation took 2 weeks to complete it for existing employees and then i got HR to use it to onboard all new colleagues. This way i have these columns up to date. I suggest this i found it incredibly useful as an employee list.

None of my User Tables or Lists included this gender column. The way i worked around this was having a user table and when they started the app it would check if the user was present in the list  and if there gender was populated in the list. If they were not, it made them fill in the value in a quick form and if they were it showed nothing. this filled the gap in my data i found no workaround other than collecting the data. I did once do a solution for one organisation where the HR team provided the data in that case i just added the gender from it to my user list from there 🙂

I want to get gender for Logged in Users in PowerApps, or from Office365 connectors or Azure AD .. any thing will work.

Thanks

Hello @sayyedkohler,

 

As per OOB Behavior we cannot achieve the same, because we cannot create Custom fields in Office 365 or Azure portal too
