Send Chat message to multiple recipients

For some reason I'm not able to send a chat message to multiple recipients, but it works if I only send it to a single user. I am using the action "Post a message as the Flow bot to a user"

 

I tried it like this and many other ways:

But the flow always fails.

What is the correct way to do this?

Hello!

 

I understand that you are trying to send a message to multiple users as a Flow bot. The best way of doing this would be: 

1. Initialise an array variable and add all the recipients to that array

2. Create an Apply to Each control and select the array variable you created in Step 1 for the "Select an output from the previous steps option"

3. Add an action "send message as the Flow bot" -> add your headline -> Select "Current Item" for the recipient -> add your message. 

 

This will ensure that the message is delivered to all the addresses that you have defined in the array list. Kindly refer to the screenshot below for better understanding:

Hello and thank you again for your help, how would I need to define the recipients in the array variable?

Thanks a lot, works like a charm! Smiley Happy

Hi dear,

 

The problem is that is just working for all flow if the first email answer the question.

This is just what I was looking for. Thanks!

it is ridiculous that I can add multiple names, which are separated by semicolon automaticly, but are not interpreted as a names array... But thanks anyway, not your false.
