Need to check if the email information is valid

Hello,

 

I have a form-flow-sharepoint list that is base for other flow. The main flow is an approval flow and I want to give the approvers a way to change the approver if they need. Instead of give them access to sharepoint (because this sharepoint is base to lots of flows and I dont want to compromise the security) I build a form to request the approver email. I was able to limit who can send the request. Now I need to ensure the user input a valid email on form. 

 

I have the subtitle with this information - please enter your email@microsoft.com. But after testing with users I realize errors can occur. There is a way to validate the value they entry and only run the flow after that? I need to validate if the email is a valid one.

 

thank you

Hello @lupompei ,

I think you could use the 'Get user profile (V2)' action for that. Use the email they provide to search for a user, if it finds a user, it's a valid email address. Otherwise it's an invalid user and you can inform the user or end the flow.
