Flow - Adding data to SharePoint people/groups field

Hi All,


I wondered how I can setup a flow to fill in a people/group lookup field in SharePoint?


I have tried using an email address but this fails with bad request.

Hi @dnewton,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Could you please show a bit more about your error message?

Further, could you please share a bit more about your SharePoint list?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:7.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:8.JPG



Please check if the email address that you filled within Person or group field of "Create item" action is existed in your Office 365 organization.


Best regards,
