Error with Post a message as the Flow Bot to a user

Hi all:

 

I'm trying to create a flow to send 11 users a daily reminder through the Flow Bot.

If I add a single recipient, the flow works well. If I add multiple recipients then I get an error when I run the flow:

Is this flow meant to be to a single recipient only? If so, which alternative flow do you recommend I use?

 

Thanks 🙂

Hi @Yousra,

 

As far as I am aware this only supports a single recipient. 

 

I have seen a couple of workarounds in this thread though:

Hope this helps a bit?

Thanks for your reply! 

 

I ended up doing the same thing they recommended; which is to repeat the action to all 11 users. I guess it wasn't a big issue considering I only have 11 recipients, but I can imagine this being a headache if there were hundreds of users! 

When I have come across this I have made a table in SharePoint or Excel that has a single column that has the emails listed. Then I use a "List rows in table" action to get that information then put that dynamic content in the recipient field. It makes an apply to each step but will send the message to everyone on the list.
