ShoutOut Powerapp issue with Profile PIctures

Hi everyone, my first post!

Regarding the shoutout powerapp, which is great by the way, i am getting the following error opening the app


Office365Users.UserPhotoMetadata failed: { "error": { "code": "ErrorItemNotFound", "message": "The photo wasn't found.", "innerError": { "request-id": "89cdda18-d053-4d78-853a-2495f7206b4e", "date": "2018-11-07T20:31:50" } } }


Based on my research it is recommended to use the UserprofileV2 command, which i did, but i am still gettin the errorl. I am aware that there are many users that prefer not to have a profile picture, so ignoring the error is not really what i want them to do.


Does anyone have a way to just suppress the error message? or how to fix it?

Hi @jcollins ,


I've been playing around with this and the following appears to have worked, haven't seen the error since. However I haven't had much success getting the placeholder default profile pic to appear if a user doesn't have a profile picture, currently it will just be blank. 

Under searchpersonscreen>ImageUser_1  select Image



If(!IsBlank(ThisItem.Id), Office365Users.UserPhotoV2(ThisItem.Id))
