In SharePoint online, we can filter list web part using a text filter web part. In a similar way, how can I create a people picker type of filter which will filter the list.

Is it possible Out of the box?

  • Do you mean that when you try to filter and pick a Person&Group column, you would like to get a People Picker field for picking the users you would like to filter on? Why not just type their names? – Mihail-Florin Popa Apr 22 '17 at 9:24
  • I have to search the person with their user name, I can do this using simple text filter webpart, but if it is a people picker type textbox then advantage is that it will also validate if that username is valid – KumarV Apr 22 '17 at 9:48
  • I see what you mean now. Why not simply use the column filter like in Excel instead of an additional webpart: click the column name and then select the name of the user? – Mihail-Florin Popa Apr 22 '17 at 10:44
  • The requirement is different here, user needs to search item based on the username, its UI requirement – KumarV Apr 22 '17 at 11:34
