Office365Users.SearchUser() Search by location/department/jobtitle

if I use  Office365Users.SearchUser({searchTerm:TextInput1.Text,top:500}) , it will only search by user name. Is there a way to search all other fields as well.

e.g. If type in Marketing in the textinput field, the gallery will return everyone from marketing department.

But in my App, I had a connection to Office 365 Users, and I inserted a Text box and set its Text property to show information about current user, for example: Office365Users.MyProfile().DisplayName, it worked well and user DisplayName was shown. When I set its Text property to show user Department, I got the same issue with you, no error message and no user Department information was shown. And I also tried to show information about another user, I can also get information about DisplayName, ID, etc. but I can’t get Department information.


It is a limitation of the connector. The Microsoft Graph API supports filtering on department, but it is not exposed by the connector. We are currently working on a fix.

I'm looking for a similar solution.  I'm looking to generate gallaries of all employees of a specific JobTitle, Department, or Location.

In this Casse the Office365Users.SearchUser() Connector is not reliable in Tenants with more then 999 Users, because the filter on JobTitle, Department or Location is established after the top:999 User Limit. No Pagination in Batches possible with this Connector. So the filters on JobTitle, Department or Location are not delegable. Suboptimal Connector Design....
