Does anyone have a recommendation/example of the best way to take a field from Sharepoint and convert it to an email address. I have a field in Sharepoint where a user selects a name (choice field). I do not want to use a Person or Group field, as I want to make it a simple choice instead of them having to type in a name. I want to take this name and convert it to an email address for futher use in the flow. For example:
Choices in Sharepoint:
Output for use in MS Flow:
There is probably a neater way of doing this but use a Compose action to use an IF statment for each:
if(equals(triggerBody()?['FIELD IN SHAREPOINT']?['Value'],'Bob Ross'), 'Bob.Ross@company.com', '')
if(equals(triggerBody()?['FIELD IN SHAREPOINT']?['Value'],'Dale Earnhardt'), 'Dale.Earnhardt@company.com', '')
if(equals(triggerBody()?['FIELD IN SHAREPOINT']?['Value'],'Jim Croce'), 'Jim.Croce@comporium.com', '')
if(equals(triggerBody()?['FIELD IN SHAREPOINT']?['Value'],'Taylor Swift'), 'Taylor.Swift@comporium.com', '')
You could use Expression-replace() to replace the space of the name with "." and then use the concat() function to add the domain name.
I noticed that the domain name of the user's email may be different. I suggest adding a domain tag to the user's domain name in SharePoint list. The field type can also be Choice. Image reference:
The result of this expression output is an email that can be used in other Flow actions.
Please take a try and let me know if you have any question.

Would you be able to provide the same script but for flow. Instead of pulling the data from sharepoint I would like to pull the data from a field in a form.
Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
Hi @v-bacao-msft ,
I found this thread when swarching for a way to create e-mail address out of Sharepoint list field. Great, thanks!
But, in my case it is a bit more elaborate:
How do i tweak this expression
to create email@example.com, from this:
Column names are Fornamn, Efternamn, Domain
