Save a string value to people picker field

Hello,

 

I have library A where I upload files. I have email addresses saved in a multiline text field(Email) for each file. The flow trigers when a file is uploaded into this library. I use get properties from artcile action to get the details of the file and save the email address to a variable using the expression 

 

body('Get_properties_from_article')['OData_Email'].

 

I would like to save these email addresses to a people picker field in a different list by create item action. The email address wont save into people picker when assign the people picker field with the variable and the output is blank. How I do save them into people picker field.

 

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

Re: Save a string value to people picker field

Hi @ck25415,

 

Could you please share more details about the people picker field that you mentioned?Is it a Person column?

 

If the people picker field that you mentioned is a Person column, you could refer to screenshot below to save a email address to the person column as below:

The expression in the person Claims column should as below:

i:0#.f|membership|xxxx@xxxxxx.com

Best regards,

Alice

Hello Alice,

 

Its a person or group field with multiple selections allowed. I wanted to input the email addresses that are saved in the variable(using expression body('Get_properties_from_article')['OData_Email'].) to this people picker field. It wont let me save because the email addresses are from a string field. Any idead how to convert them to save into people picker field.

Hello Alice,

 

Email is a field(multi line text field) in the library papers where we save email addresses. I used authordetails variable to save these email addresses after getting the properties from article. I use this information to create a wiki page in Publish library where Author is a people picker field and assign the authordetails variable to save those email addresses in this field.
