Capturing AssignedTo email

I'm using the template for due date reminder for Sharepoint Online tasks list.  This flow currently is sending myself an email.  I would like to send this email to the person assigned to the tasks.  And it could be multiple people.  I do not see AssignedToEmail field, only AssignedToName.  I'm guessing I have to use "get user profile" from O365 Users to grab the email and append it.  Not sure where to input that in the flow.  Any suggestions?

Hi @S_Tran,


Because you can assign multiple people the AssignedTo field will also be an array. If you want to retrieve all e-mails in one string you could use a select and join the e-mails with a ; character.

 

Below is an example of that approach.

 

1. The Select uses the AssignedTo field from the Apply to Each. The select uses the item()['Email'] to retrieve the e-mail address of every user of that specific item.

{
    "inputs": {
        "from": "@items('Apply_to_each')?['AssignedTo']",
        "select": "@item()?['Email']"
    }
}

 

2. The compose uses the expression below. The compose is just an example. You could also use that expression in a To field of an Send an email action.

join(body('Select'), ';')
