How to get and create separate variable from an apply to each step

Hi everyone!  What i am trying to accomplish is create 3 variables from an apply to each step in PA.  I have a field in SharePoint that is a people picker which would be a list of approvers.  A user would enter those approvers and in PA i would like to create 3 variables: Approver1,2,3.


I have gotten to the point where the apply to each works and returns the 3 people and their email addresses but i am stuck on how to create 3 seperate variables from that apply to each.  I would like to extract the individual email addresses from those 3 approvers and send them seperate emails.  Thanks in advance.

Create a string or object array variable to hold the user objects or email strings.  Then use the Append to array action inside the loop to append a new array entry to the end of the variable.  Then you can either use a combination of First(LastN()) or access the array entry directly using JSON notation.  For a string variable called test you would get the second element using this JSON
