Update a table

Hi,

 

I am making an app to manage our Azure to keep employee information up to date. I have a master Excel list with each group of people on a different sheet. I want to make it so if manager "A" gets on to use the app, they will see one table, but if manager "B" gets on, they will see a different table. However, I do not want to make a screen for each group because there are about 50 of them. Is it possible to update one table dependant on something a User click? If I need to explain further, please ask. 

 

Thank you for time,

Zach.

Hi @zdieter,

 

There is no need to switch the table by a user click.

Within PowerApps, there is a way to auto-determine the needed table with the sign-in user information.

 

Please follow the steps below:

1. Save the Current user information and the Table and the Manager relationship into collection, we need to perform this under the OnVisible property of the first screen, with the code below:

Set(CurrentUser,User());
ClearCollect(TableCollection,
Table({ManagerEmail:"ManagerAEmail@company.com",Table0:Table1},
{ManagerEmail:"ManagerB@company.com",Table0:Table2}))

2. Using lookup to determine which table should be displayed under the Gallery:

Lookup(TableCollection, ManagerEmail=CurrentUser.Email, Table0)

Let me know if this works for you.

Michael

Thank you so much! That works perfectly! 

Quick Question, if I had managers that managed multiple groups, how could I give them the option to pick which table to go to?

Hi @zdieter,

 

If some tables share the same manager, then the TableCollection would need another column to identify each table, so that the lookup() function could identify the unique table.

That works! Thank you!.

Last question I promise, but I want it so the person using the app can click on a person and get all the details but I cannot get the detail forum to connect to the current table. I have tried using a the same lookup forumal you gave me and tried setting a variable to the current table.
