Using a sharepoint person collumn with multiple entries to send emails to all the recipients

I've tried creating an approval action that sends approval emails to multiple recipients, the emails are being picked up from a SharePoint list person collumn that allows multiple selections, unfortunately that fails, changing the collumn to accept single entry resolves the issue, is there a workaround for this?

Hi HarryDimitriou,


I am afraid that it is a known issue for SharePoint columns that support multiple values or selections.


Please check this documentation for a reference:


On Flow ideas forum, there is a similar request. And the status of the idea has been changed to “Under Review”. I guess that this feature will be coming soon. Please check and vote the idea at here:
