Flow to populate SPO list Person type column

I am creating a flow and want to auto-populate Reviewers column with Reviewers (users' email addresses) that user enters when they manually start the flow.  This works when a user enter 1 reviewer, but this fails with the below error message if a user enters multiple reviewers.  Any idea how to get this column populated with multi reviewers? 

"status": 400,

  "message": "The specified user; could not be found.\r\nclientRequestId: c5b7f06b-95e2-413a-96db-73c8bbdd3127\r\nserviceRequestId: c5b7f06b-95e2-413a-96db-73c8bbdd3127"

Hi @SPRock76 


The field you're trying to insert expects one entry (email) at a time. You can do it dynamically, but you need to format the date as follows:

    "Claims": "email 1"
    "Claims": "email 2"


Here's the view when you fill in manually.

Press the button:



And here's when you "Switch to input the entire array."

I wrote an article explaining this issue that is common with Microsoft Forms that can show you the problems and the necessary formulas to convert the data:
