Create SharePoint folders from PowerApp

I have created an app, where you can search AD for users.  Users name, department are stored in a collection.  I want to create a folder for each user searched for in the app.  I have the Flow setup but I am missing how I pass the name of the user to Flow so that it can create the folder name.  How do I get the variable into Flow?Screenshot 2019-10-14 at 14.01.20.pngScreenshot 2019-10-14 at 14.23.49.png

To get the current user you use User().FullName or User().Email. You can put a compose in your Flow that ask for that and then push it out from PowerApps. 

 

Anything you want to go from PowerApps into Flow you do the "Ask in PowerApps" first in your Flow where you want the data to go and then save and then it will prompt your for that data in PowerApps. If it is multiple "users" that you want the Flow triggered separately for each you should be able use the ForAll in Powerapps and refer to your gallery or collection for the data. I haven't personally used ForAll for Flow yet (usually just patch) but it should work the same way.
