OMG! Thank you so much. When I tried following the steps from the link I provided previously, I must have missed the part where to select "Users" entity in Get Record.

Glad I could help 🙂

Yes, the link you provided, they were using the Accounts entity.

Get records will only work if you have the Unique ID (the guid of the lookup)

Happy flowing!
