Problems to get senders name from Forms to Excel

I used MS Forms to create a query for colleagues  in our intranet, and Power Automate to retrieves the response data to send information to the selected Excel.

I can't get Power Automate take automatically the senders name from Forms.

I get all the other information, like an respondents e-mail.

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me how to get a name for the selected cell?

Hi @Anssi 

yes, MS Forms will only give you the responder email, but you can add the Office 365 Users action "Get user profile (V2)" and put the responder email in the User field to get this information.

 

Does this help you? Otherwise please give me some more information.

You can use the Search for users (V2) action, using the Responder's Email address as the search term:

Then you can use the dynamic content Display Name to populate the Excel cell:
