Formatting name in Flow

Hi All,


Problem: When someone fills out a new item in a SharePoint list, I send out an email with an update and want to format their name as Firstname,Lastname instead of Lastname,Firstname.


Is there a way to do this?




Hi @Anonymous 


Can you share more details? Are you referring to the created by field you can directly use the Created by Display Name and that would show the name appropriately. Else, you can split the string on ',' (Comma key) and then add the last part of the split first and the first part of the split after adding the last one and make it as First Name Last Name and then use concat to join the two. 


Hope this Helps!
