Send email when Planner task is complete



How do I send an email when a Planner task is complete?  I found the template, but I'm having trouble extracting the email address of the original sender of the request.  I added the sender in the Planner task but I don't see a way to extract that into the new flow for sending an email.

Hello @helpwithautomat ,

if I remember correctly the Planner task will give you the user ID, not the user email. As such, you'll have to add the 'Get user profile (V2)' action to the flow, use the user ID as the input, and it'll return the user email together with all the other user information. This email can be then used to send an email.
