The fix has been deployed. If you have already published an app with the bug, you will have to open the app in PowerApps Studio and re-publish to get the fix. We apologize for the inconvenience and are reviewing how we can prevent similar incidents from happening in future.
Please let me know if you still are having problems with this issue.
I am trying to get the Email of a Person in a People/Group column in a SharePoint list.
On the generated 'Details' Screen, there are 'Edit' (IconEdit1) and 'Delete' (IconDelete1) icons at the top of the screen. I want to hide those icons for everyone except for the 'Administrator'.
SharePoint List: Events
People/Group Column Name: Administrator
(In the Sharepoint List Administrator column, I have entered myself as the value)
I have the following code in the 'IconEdit1' and 'IconDelete1' Visible field:
If(User() = Events.Administrator,true, false)
The icons are hidden from me and I get the following error: Invalid argument type. IconDelete1.Visible (same for edit)
I suspect that the data values (tables?) are different between User() and Events.Administrator, causing the mismatch.
I tried the following: If(User().Email = Events.Administrator.Email, true, false)
with the following additional error: Name isn't valid. This identifier isn't recognized. This error appears most commonly when a formula refers to something that no longer exists (for example, a control that you've deleted). Location: IconDelete1.Visible
I know that User().Email is working, as both User() and .Email were auto-suggested in PowerApps as I typed them. Events and .Administrator both auto-suggested as well, but then adding the .Email at the end DID NOT auto-suggest, indicating that this is where the problem is. I suspect that calling Events.Administrator is returning an object of some sort that relates to a person. How do I then query this object for an email?
@Joseph1 Hi, you want to use the on visible property of the buttons and change their values from true/false to an if statement, something like if(User().Email = myAdministrators@email.com,true,false)
Yes, but where you have 'myAdministrators@email.com, I want to reference a sharepoint list (called 'Events') with a People/Group column (called 'Administrators'). I want to test against the email property from the People/Group columns value.
