Get manager for employee

One of the fields in my SP list is "employee name" which is a "People or Groups" field. I need Flow to find the manager's name/email for that person and send the manager a specific email. Is that possible? If so, please let me know where it's best to find instructions.

Hi @Anonymous,


Do you want to send an email to employee’s manager dynamically?

Before we start the flow, please make sure you have specified corresponding Manager to each Employee in Azure AD.

Please check the following doc on how to add or update a user’s profile information using Azure Active Directory:

After you have specified manager to each employee, you could start the flow likes below.

Trigger the flow with When an item is created. Of course, there is a people column in SharePoint list named as EmployeeName.

Then use the action Get user profile to return the UPN of the Employee.

Add the action Get manager, select dynamic content User Principal Name from the previous action.

In the action Send an email, select To from the action Get manager for the To field.

Please feel free post back if you need more help.


Best regards,
