Showing contact activities filtered on current user

I am trying to show activities (CDS entity activitypointer) on the Power Apps portal filtered by the currently logged in user. Using regardingobjectid as lookup in the filter conditions on the entitylist seems to do nothing as I still get all activities. That of course could be as underlying the regardingobjectid can refer to various types of entities, not only contact. Filtering like described does work for a regular lookup to contact.

Of course, once I have managed to get the list of activities I will encounter the next challenge - showing various pages based on the activitytype (for an e-mail one would like to see other detail information than for a task). So I wonder if I should continue the out-of-the-box entitylist behavior route. Any advise is welcome!

Hi @DyajAr ,

Do you want to filter entity activitypointer based on current user?

Could you tell me which field has the value related to user account information and what is this field's data type?

If you want to only display items related to current user, you need to compare with this value:

User().DisplayName or User().Email

What's more, if the compared field is a lookup field, please tell me the related entity.

It now works … so I assume that it must be related to a caching issue. Thanks for looking into it.
