Update SharePoint Item



I have been searching around the forum and have not seen what I am looking for in the exact method needed. What I am looking for is how to update a SharePoint list item with the Manager and Location in two text fields for the person that created the list item with a Flow. Is this possible? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello @BenTen ,

Power Automate has an action 'Get user profile'. You'll enter the 'Created By Email' as the input, and it'll return all the available information about that user. Among the information will be also the user's manager and location (if it's configured in the user profile).

Cool, I was looking at the Get User Profile V2 & Get Manager pieces. I will take a look and test!
