Setting variables from other list

I set a flow up with the idea of using another list (users which would be easy to change) as variables to email. I had no problem initializing the variables, and setting them to the list. Flow put them in the apply to each action.

The problem was that a notification email was sent repeatedly for each of the variables set. Identical emails all arriving at the same time. Could it be the apply to each causing the issue?

I've resorted to hardcoding the users but this isn't ideal, as the burden of updating the users remains mine.

Is there a way to make sure the email is only sent once?

Re: Setting variables from other list

Hi @dworthy75,


Could you please share screenshots of Flow configuration?

Would these all users received repeat emails?
