Get items not returning data



I am still new to the power automate flow stuff. I am having a problem with Get Items. 


I have created a list in my sharepoint site. I am using Get Items to look up an email address. In the title coloumn I have put the users full name and then I have a column 'email address' with their email address in. 


So the Get Items is seeing all the columns because when I go to add an action- Send an email, I can see in the dynamic content all of the coloumn headings. 


In the send an email - I add Email Address from the Get Items but when I run the flow, the email doesn't get sent. When I then look at that flow, the send an email is greyed out which from researching other peoples queries means there is a problem with the Get Items. 


I'm not sure if that makes any sense or if anyone can help! 


Frazzled here!!

Hi @flowbeginner1 

Did you write the conditions in the Filler Query of Get items?

Send an email is gray, it means that there is no email address can be sent, indicating that there is no item that meets the conditions in the get items.

Could you please provide the screenshot of the Get items configuration?

I simply created a flow, you can refer to as below:

In my test, will filter out the item which Name is 'AAA' and send an email.

This is my list


Flow in details:



After flow runs, Name:’AAA’ with email address: Test2@... will receive an email


Hope the content above may help you.

Best Regards
