SharePoint List sort, Filter and search



I am building an application named School in powerapps with connecting to sharepoint list. I want my app to search for speacfic things like School Name and Area. I am not sure what to do. I tried to change the sort but my filter got screwed up and if i change my TextSearchBox1 niothing works but gets an error. I also would like to add dropdown controls and link to search, so users can search and select from dropdown to make navigation more particular. 


I would Thank Powerapps Staff in advance.

Re: SharePoint List sort, Filter and search

Hi @Devang,


Would you please share the error message?

If you would like to filter the SharePoint list with a single searchBox for multiple fields, then please consider take use of the search function:

Filter, Search, and LookUp functions in PowerApps

Formula should be:

Sortbycolumns(Search(SharePointList, TextSearchBox1.text, SchoolNameField, AreaField), "Title", If(SortDescending1, Descending, Ascending))
