Link a Name in a collection to 365 user

Hey guys,


Not sure its possible how I'm going about it but there must be some way to do it.

I have created an HR/Staff app and one of the components I've put in is an office map.

I created the map using @seadude's video and it works great. I have a collection that is created on screen visibility (OnVisible).
Theres a dropdown with the floors (only ground and first floor, its not a big office), which in turns brings up the respective floor map and pins (each floor has its own gallery).

In the collection I've put everyones names.

I have another gallery underneath for when a pin is tapped it brings up the persons name.

What I want to be able to do is link the name from the collection (maybe I need to do add all the names to the collection in a different way?) to their Office365 profile so I can then show their profile picture and other details such as job title and manager.

I hope I've explained it well, let me know if you need any more info.

Very much appreciated if someone can help! Thank you 🙂


Edit: I still haven't gotten anywhere. I have also tried using Filter('SPList', BlaBlaGallery.Selected.Name in Title) after I had an epiphany I thought but doesn't work. Neither does Title = BlaBlaGallery.Selected.Name

I feel like this is simple but maybe its not 😞


Edit2: I did it, I was doing some dumb and found that the above formula Filter('SPList', BlaBlaGallery.Selected.Name in Title) was working after all, I just had changed some "Names" to email addresses to connect that way.
