CDS Created By User and LAst Modified by user

I really do not care of seeing a meaningless long code to identify a user who has created/modified a CDS entity record. In PowerApps, I know we can code to show the user name or other user properties. But in Excel (via CDS Add in) or online, what does it mean for you to know that user 2345hb245lhg346b356jhv356hj35h6325.6b35.k6j has created a record?

 

please make it simple, please give us the choice choose which field to display behind a user created/modified a record, or at least make user email address the default.

I am using CDS and both Created by and Last Modified by keeps showing as long codes.  Any ideas?

This is done in CDS 2.0 so this Idea should be marked Completed.

The created by user still does not show the actual user.  Looks more like GUID.   Do I need to do something for this to show the actual user in PowerApps?

 

Thanks

 

Nevermind, I had to add the Office 365 User Profile connection and then use

Office365Users.UserProfile()
