I need to enter data in Sharepoint Lists, when the data is entered a email goes out (triggered by Microsoft Flow). However, there is a email column in the Sharepoint List. I need the email to send to that specific person. Can flow do this and if not, what other options exist?

Does anyone have some good resources to learn flow at a deeper level?

Yes, Flow can do this.

You would just use your custom field in the "To" field, inside the "Send an email" action.

I've included a very basic Flow that will capture the information from a list item, and use a custom column (in this case, just titled "E-Mail") to send an email. This is triggered when an item is created in SharePoint:

In terms of learning about Flow, I would recommend Microsoft Flow Learning Resources.
