Office 365 SharePoint List Data - Represented as Accordion View on Power Apps

Power Apps provides multiple ways to represent data with just out of the box configurations, without writing any code. In my specific case, there is a requirement to get accordion view of list data on Power Apps. Let us understand, how this could be achieved with elements available on Power Apps.

Let us get the data from SharePoint list, and show the accordion view. The accordion view has to be created by grouping the list items.  In our case, we will show the jobs list in the accordion view, grouped under each business/technical group. The jobs list present on SharePoint data contains title and category, where category is grouping element.

After following the steps/configurations, the final accordion view will look like the following snapshot.

In my past articles, we have seen various ways to show people data. Here let us take another approach to show people/user information. Similar to modal dialog on SharePoint, we will see how to provide modal dialog like experience on Power Apps.

Let us leverage people search section from our previous articles. Build the people search as explained in my previous post.

On click of any user in the Power Apps user list, we will try attaching modal dialog screen. The following picture depicts the modal dialog view.
