Power Apps Search and Filter Functions on Large SharePoint Lists

In this video, you will learn how to use the PowerApps Search Function, Filter Function & combine both.

These functions are useful to allow users to search through all items in your data source and/or filter your data. We will build a search box, look at delegation (working with large data sources e.g. SharePoint Lists) & understand why Search function may not return all items with SharePoint as a data source. We will explore delegable functions like StartsWith & look at a technique of performing search against a filtered (delegable) result set.
