Show Button or Screen based on User permissions

Is there a way to create an If statement for the Visibile property on a button to only display if the current user has Create item permission on the list?

 

Or

 

Is there a way to show a particular OnStart screen based on who the user is?

 

Thanks!

You can use the onStart function or onvisible depending on your use case

You can use the User function (https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/function-user/) or the office 365 connector (https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/connection-office365-outlook/) to find out who the user is and navigate to a particular screen based on the user.

 

I'm not sure about how to detect if the user has create list permissions however. @KeremY or @sarafankit who might know the answer.

I have tried using DataSourceinfo.CreatePermission but that does not work. Other users have pointed out this issue.

 

What screen property would you set to enforce a specific startup screen?

Could this be used for a group of users?

You can use the OnStart property. That will trigger the once when the app is run.

 

You can check if the user belongs to a table (eg. an admin table). Take a look at the Filter function (https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/tutorials/function-filter-lookup/)

To hide/view specific buttons based on users in specific groups. Like users in my team cam view all buttons, and hide few for rest all users in org.

Hi,

 

You can use the below

 

If(User().Email = "user@domain.com", DisplayMode.View)

Hi!

 

In this old post: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Discussion/Is-it-possible-to-switch-the-view-as-InfoPath... I talk about using membership in AD groups to control the visibility of UI elements.

 

Good luck!
