Weird Message Using Power Automate's Send an Email and Approval Connectors

I am having a weird output instead of the actual name of the person when receiving a reply email from "Start and wait for an approval"?

As shown in the screenshot, I am selecting the dynamic content of "requested by" which causes 

this issue:

I also switched to "Requested by" ( which is a Person/Group column in SharePoint) in the To: column for "Send an email (V2)" in the screenshot below and get the following:

Flow save failed with code 'OpenApiOperationParameterValidationFailed' and message 'Input parameter 'emailMessage' validation failed in workflow operation 'Send_an_email_(V2)_#1_(Back_to_Requesting_Employee)': The parameter with value '"@triggerOutputs()?['body/RequestedBy2']"' in path 'emailMessage/To' with type/format 'Object' is not convertible to type/format 'String/email'.'.

Any ideas?

Hi @y2kardell 

In Power Automate you should be able select another field called "Requested By Email". Could you check if that field is shown while you design the workflow?

Hope it helps!
