Is it currently possible to get the display name of the sender/from field for incoming emails?

 

If so, I can't seem to figure out how?

 

Thanks for any help,

Richard

@Richard McGrath I use Azure AD - get user

Hi @Richard McGrath 

 

Are you talking for emails sent by internal staff or externals as well?

 

If it's internal, you could use the Office 365 Get user profile (V2) action which will retrieve the senders details to use.

If you're talking external folks, I'm not aware of any official way to get the name.

 

Cheers
