Hi,

 

I want to run a flow that will add the current user to a People field set to allow multiple people.  Even if I try just using the "UserField Claims" option, without trying to add my new user, all it does is creates a foreach which then leaves me with a single value of the last user in the field.

 

As I mentioned, all I want is to take a field with multiple people in it and add another. 

 

Anyone come across this and able to help?

 

Thanks...

 

John

it sounds like you may need to get the current value from the field and assign it to a variable, get the new person and add them to another variable, then join the two variables with a semicolon, and update the field with the output of the join.
Hi Rob,

Thanks for the reply. I tried to do that, but I got an error along the lines of "user1@domain.com; user2@domain.com; user3@domain.com" cannot be found.

@John CondronI realize this is months too late, but I had some difficulty adding 1 user to a multi-person field which already had 1+ users in it. 

 

I found and contributed to a working solution here:  https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Flow-cannot-update-quot-multiple-people-or-group-...

 

Maybe it'll help you.

@Rob Ellis  I just realized your link is what lead me to the final solution for this!  Thanks for making that connection.
