How to retrieve items, depend on latest date?

Hello, 

I have SP list with items, which represent covid test employee.
Example: 
employee A - 20.3.2021
employee B - 28.3.2021
employee A - 17.03.2021

And I make app, where I need to retrieve only the latest test of employee. 
Result should be:
employee A - 20.3.2021
employee B - 28.3.2021

But, I dont know, how to filter it. Or if use power automate/ logic apps to get required items?
Is in power apps some function for it, or another way to get it?

Thanks for any advice.

Hi @TomasG,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, do you want to filter out the latest test for each employee?

Could you please share a bit more about the scenario,is this date a Date and Time column?

I think GroupBy() function could achieve your needs.

I just assume that you have a Date and Time column.

Where do you want to filter out the records, Gallery?

Add a Gallery and set the Items:

GroupBy(SPLits,"employee","Gemp")

Set the Text of the Label within as below:

First(Sort(ThisItem.Gemp,Date,Descending)).Date

All SharePoint lists have a hidden ID column that is sequential.  To see the latest items, you can do this as the Items property of a gallery or datatable.  This function is delegatable, meaning it will work no matter how many items are in your list. 

 

Sort(Yourlist,ID,Descending)
