Getting email address out of person/group datacard

So i have an app connected to a list where one of the fields in the list is a person/group field. In the app i want to be able to send an email to the person/group the user selects from the app. I already have the email flow setup, but how do i extract the email address out of the person/group datacard on the powerapp?

Re: Getting email address out of person/group datacard

I don't think this is supported yet :(, I tried doing a similar thing a few weeks ago and came across these posts:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Forum/SharePoint-List-Update-Person-Field/td-p/6980

 

I ended up saving the email address in a text field in my SharePoint list instead and accessing that field to send the email address to Flow.

 

It looks like this feature is currently planned: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/SharePoint-Online-Support-quot-Person-or-Group-q...

 

Hopefully this gets supported soon...
