Retrieve office365 user email issue

Hi, 

 

I would like to get the applicant's email address, which was a value of Office365Users.

Form1.LastSubmit.applicant is fine to return it's name, but

Form1.LastSubmit.applicant.email is failed to return it's email address

 

I also tried the 

Office365Users.UserProfile(Form1.LastSubmit.applicant).Mail

but it returned error as shown below

 

May I know how can I retrieve the email there?

Thanks in advance

Sam

Hi @samsam ,

Could you tell me

1)the data type of applicant field?

2)the Update property of this data card?

I assume that it is a single person field.

Please set the datacard's Update:

{'@odata.type': "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedUser",
  Claims:"i:0#.f|membership|" & ComboBox1.Selected.Email),
  Department:"",
  DisplayName:ComboBox1.Selected.DisplayName,
  Email:ComboBox1.Selected.Email,
  JobTitle:".",
  Picture:"."}

you could get mail by using this formula:

Form1.LastSubmit.applicant.Email

or you could also use:

Office365Users.UserProfile_V2(Form1.LastSubmit.applicant.DisplayName).Mail

//UserProfile action has been deprecated. Please use Get user profile (V2) instead.

Please know more about person field's structure and these two functions' results' structure.

Here are docs about these for your reference:

@v-yutliu-msft  Thanks for the reply

 

Sorry that I didn't mention the database is MSSQL, and datatype is VARCHAR(50)

I have no idea is there any syntax difference between MSSQL and SharePoint List...

 

I tried 

 

Office365Users.UserProfile_V2(Form1.LastSubmit.applicant. (<<< after that, no attribute popup)

 

 

However, I found another way that work perfectly for me

 

UpdateContext({vEmail:ComboBox1.Selected.Mail});SubmitForm(Form1);Navigate(Screen2);'DB-ClaimApplication'.Run(Form1.LastSubmit.applicant,vEmail)

 

 

Thanks for the help
