Split Person Name from a SharePoint list

Hello Experts!

 

I would like to confirm if it is possible to bring only the name of a person from a Person field in a SharePoint List.

 

I am creating a Flow which is connected to a SharePoint list. In the SP List I have a field named "Employee" with type:Person.

I would like to bring only the name of the employee, however I have not been able to. In flow, I noticed the option of "Employee Display Name", however, this option bring the Name and Last Name.

 

I will appreciate any suggestion!

Thank you 🙂

@vsolanon Yes it is possible. Add an Office 365 Users Get user profile (v2) action and for the User field select Employee Email from the dynamic content. Then you can get the Given name property which is the first name of the employee.
