Extract data - HTML to Text



I have seen many examples of using substring but it is not working for me. I have the following text extracted from email message:




Chat transcript


Name: Mike Brown




I want to extract bnoth name and email and then generate a JSON object, something like this:



  "name": "Mike Brown",

    "email": ""



How do achieve this without using third party connector?


I use the substring expression  : 


substring(body('Html_to_text'), add(lastIndexOf(body('Html_to_text'), 'Name: '), 15), 😎

but I only get the word 'Mike'.


My flow is:


Please help

Sorry for the delay - I actually ended up using a webhook from my external app and I was able to parse the JSON using Flow.
