How to filter data retrieved from Zoho People for Creator current user and fill form fields?


I am looking to import Employee details from Zoho People to a form in Creator and I'm not sure how to go about doing so. What I would like, is to have the required details from Zoho People pulled and populate the  into the corresponding form fields for the Creator currently logged in user. Example:

Form :

Name, email, department

I have figured out how to connect to and retrieve the required info from Zoho People, but I am stuck(lost) about how to filter that data for the current user. May also be stuck at how to insert the data into the form once it is filtered, but I haven't gotten there yet to know. I have created the following custom function in Creator to get user details but I haven't been able to get beyond that point and I'm not really sure the right question(s) to ask.
  1. list GetEmploy()
  2. {
  3. empDetail = List();
  4. response = zoho.people.getRecords("P_Employee");
  5. info response;
  6. for each  rec in response
  7. {
  8. empDetail.add(rec.get("EmailID"));
  9. empDetail.add(rec.get("FirstName"));
  10. empDetail.add(rec.get("LastName"));
  11. empDetail.add(rec.get("Department"));
  12. }
  13. return empDetail;
  14. }
Hope that makes sense. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.
