I would like to send an auto notification to someone who's name is picked in a certain field. I would like to send only if someone is picked. So how can I check if the person picker's value is an existing person before I try to send the email?

1 Answer 1


something on the lines of. create a workflow variable (string) and pass through the people picker value.

then create an if condition to check if its not empty ;) if it isnt then create an email step. when setting the TO section select the dictionary -> workflow lookup -> select the people picker field in question, in my example i just used the modified by field and put it to return email.

1) create var and set its val to the people picker field inquestion enter image description here

2) create an if function to check if not empty. if not email using the people picker field. Click on the image below for more info. enter image description here
