In the previous blog we created a #PowerAutomate to show created tasks from #Planner in a channel in #MicrosoftTeams. Today we’ll look at showing the correct display names by using an expression in a variable and the Get User Profile Action. #PowerPlatform #PowerAddicts.

I will be pausing this #PowerPlatform challenge for a bit while I focus more on getting content out to help people work from home successfully and with confidence. Of course I’ll return and continue blogging on the #PowerPlatform. #WFH #WFHTips #WFHWithConfidence See you soon ūüôā


Disclaimer:¬† The purpose of this #PowerPlatform 1 month blog series is not to create experts, but create curious, self-learning #HumansofIT, not afraid to try, fail and learn. Focus is to enable #CitizenDevelopers (non developers) to add extra to ordinary and become EXTRAORDINARY. All humans have the ability to be great, it’s fear of failing and the unknown that keeps us back. If that’s the only thing I can achieve, to break down your fear of technical concepts, then my work here is done ūüôā
