Filter a table by multiple users



I currently have an app that is filtered by user, most of them are directors or managers. Now, I have been asked, to find a way for their assistants to be able to see what their director or manager sees on the app. Is there maybe a formula that could check the user email against one column (DirectorEmail) if not match, then check another column (AssistantEmail)?

Re: Filter a table by multiple users

Hi @KReyes,


Do you want the Dirctor User can see Director Email Column and Assistant User can only see Assistant Email in the App? Or the Director User can see both?

What data source do you use?

I test by SP as data source and use if  function to achieve what you described the requirements.


I think you can try the following workaround.

I test as Next:

Data Source:20190205FilterByUserEmai( My SP list name)


App Test:


Add one Gallery, and its layout is Title,Subtile,Body.

Subtitle6.Visible: If(User().Email in '20190205FilterByUserEmail'.DirectorEmail,true,false)    (can only see DirectorEmail)

Body3.Visible: If(User().Email in '20190205FilterByUserEmail'.AssistantEmail,true,false)       (can only see AssistantEmail)


Body3.Visible: If(User().Email in '20190205FilterByUserEmail'.DirectorEmail,true,If(User().Email in '20190205FilterByUserEmail'.AssistantEmail,true,false))  (Director can see both Email Columns)



Hope this can be helpful.

Best Regards.

Re: Filter a table by multiple users


This result may be achieved with a nested If statement. Assuming you are using a SQL table to store credentials. The Context Variable, AllowAccess, is one way to signal the program that the user is authorized.


If(!IsBlank, Lookup(dbo.MasterTable, DirectorEmail=User().Email), UpdateContext({AllowAccess:true}), If(!IsBlank, Lookup(dbo.MasterTable, AssistantEmail=User().Email), UpdateContext({AllowAccess:true}), UpdateContext({AllowAccess:false})))
