Looping through a string item

Sorry if this has been convered, I've been reading about nested loops but this is one step before that. 

 

My flow is sending SMS messages. 

 

Basically my trigger action is "When an email arrives into a shared mailbox".  The user types the phone number into the outlook subject box and from there it carries out the action.  This works.

 

However, I want to allow users to send multiple SMS.  so the string would go from something like 07713245678 (one individual number) to: -

07712345678;07798778485;07945645622 with a semi colon between each. 

 

So I would need something to iterate through the string and then perform the remaining actions for each result (which I assume would be the "For Each" action). 

 

Any help would be grateful.

 

Thanks,

JP

Re: Looping through a string item

Hi @JP_Scotland 

 

In Flow

Use a compose action with the following expression

split(dynamiccontentphonestring,';')

 

This will give you an array

The run a for loop with output from the compose action

 

and within loop use expression item() to get the individual elements in the array
