Using the author of a sharepoint list - get email address

I am working on an app and I have the author of a record in a sharepoint list. I want to be able to send email to the author when the record is deleted. I am using the Office365 connector and can hardcode the email address I want to send it to, but when I associate the person field to the text control, powerapps returns a message stating the text control expects text, but the rule provides incompatiable record results. I am setting it to:

 

Browse_Gallery2.Selected.Author (which is the person data item of the record I want to notify).

 

I am continuing to comb documentation, but any help is appreciated!

Re: Using the author of a sharepoint list - get email address

Sure, I set up an example of what you're doing. In my Gallery Data Card Value, the Text property is set to:
"Author: " & Author.DisplayName (I added "Author: " just to give it a title)

In the textbox I set the Text property to:
BrowseGallery1.Selected.Author.Email

Please give this a try and then reply with feedback to let me know how this works for you.
