Update row in spreadsheet with "sent to" field from "send an email (v2)"

Hello! I'm a newbie, so apologies if this is super basic. After sending an email (using send an email (v2)), I want to update a row in my spreadsheet with the email address the email was sent to. I'm not seeing any dynamic content for "send an email (v2)" other than body. Is it possible to do what I'm trying to do?

Hi @wellerdan ,

 

There is no any "To Address" dynamic content for the Send an email action.

And the trigger when a new email arrives have the To address dynamic content.

If you want to get the To dynamic content from the Send an email action, there  is no any way to achieve it.

Please consider manually adding the email address in the row.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hello @wellerdan,
You do not need HTML to text to get the ‘To’.

Add a compose action below your trigger.
Than the dynamic content for the trigger ‘When a new email arrives’ will be available for what you need.

Hi @Jcook - thanks for your response. Can you please expand on your comment about using the compose action? 

I've since removed the HTML to text entirely because I determined I don't need it.

A little more detail on my flow:

1. Receive an email that meets certain conditions

2. Create new row in spreadsheet based on details of the email received - one of the columns is Email Body

3. Use string functions in Excel to parse out certain details from Email Body

4. Send those details in a new email to a different recipient.

 

I want to add a 5th step where I update the spreadsheet row with the address of the email recipient from step 4. I've thought of a workaround that I can use, but curious if you're aware of how to do this using dynamic content?

 

Thanks!

Hi @wellerdan 

 

I am a bit confused now. How is the send email action configured?

 

What value is in the To field.

 

Thanks
