Re: Getting respondents Name from Microsoft Forms into Flows

Hi @Masor,

 

As you noticed, currently it is only available to get the respondents E-mail Address.

For Emails within your own organization, you could take use of Office 365 Users Action to get the User Profile, then use the Name field provided there.

But for the respondents who are outside your organization, there is no proper way to get the UserName, as the only available data that could be obtained from the Form response is restricted to the Emails.

You can use the action "Get User Profile (V2)" from "Office 365 Users". In the field "User (UPN)" you insert the dynamic field "Responder's Email".

After this you can use the fields from the "Get User Profile (V2)". This includes for example the "Display Name", which is the name of person corresponding to the email adress of the responder.

Thanks for this Michael. I am faced with the same challenge. Could you please help explain the steps for "take use of Office 365 Users Action to get the User Profile, then use the Name field provided there." in some more detail. This would help me greatly. 

 

Thanks,
