If you are using D365 as a datasource, then the signed in user can be found by using the below formula.

 

User().FullName

 

Works for me anyway!!

Hi @Ahsan_Zahid1 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to integrate D365 CRM form with PowerApps canvas app?

Further, do you want to embed a canvas app into your D365 CRM form to display the details of a specific user from your D365 CRM?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the "Embedded canvas app in D365 CRM or Model-Driven app form" functionality could achieve your needs.

More deetails about embedding canvas app in D365 CRM Form or Model-Driven app form, please refer to the following blog:

https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/announcing-the-general-availability-of-embedded-canvas-ap...

 

On your side, you could consider confiure a specific field in your D365 CRM Form layout as a canvas app (customize a new canvas app), then within the app, add Users Entity (Contacts Entity or Accounts Entity) as a data source, where the user of your D365 is stored. Then add a Edit form or Display form in this app, connect it to the data source, then set the Item proeprty of the Edit form or Display form to following:

ModelDrivenFormIntegration.Item

Then when you edit a user record from your D365 CRM form, the details of this user would be displayed within this embedded canvas app.

 

Please consider take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.
