Email notification using Microsoft Forms and Microsoft Teams Planner

Hey Everyone,


I originally set up a Microsoft Teams Planner to keep track of outstanding requests from other teams. These tasks are created via responses from a Microsoft Forms. 


After automating this, I cannot figure out what is the best way to send an automated email notification after the task is completed back to the person who originally request it. Within the Microsoft Forms, there is a spot for them to add their email address. I also noticed that there is a separate field known as responder's email which can be used. However, how can I get either the Responder's email field or the Microsoft Forms email field to populate in the Send Email notification part of the flow.


Current Process is


When a task is completed -> Send an email notification (V3) 




Super User
Super User

Here is one way to get the Responder's Email address automatically without them needing to fill in their email address on the MS Form. Then you can use the Responder's Email address in your flow.

Set the Forms setting to allow "only people in my organisation can respond":


You can get the Responder's Email using dynamic content:



Hi Ellis,


Reponder's Email is not an option in my flow even after trying to add get response details.


When a task is completed

   Group ID and Plan ID are entered

Get Response Details

   Added Form ID for the Microsoft Forms that corresponds to the Group ID

   Response ID only populates the following options





Super User
Super User

If your form includes an email address field that they need to manually enter, then this field and all the other form fields should be available as dynamic content:





I tried to add in the flows shown in your screenshot but then I am unable to add in the flow of when a task is complete.




my current flow is as follows


When Task is completed (Group ID and Plan ID) -> Get Response details (Form ID and Response ID) {Response ID is Percent Complete} -> Send an email notification v3 {To is listed as Responder's email}


I end up with the following error message


{"errors":[{"message":"The to array is required for all personalization objects, and must have at least one email object with a valid email address.","field":"","help":""}]}
