I am facing an issue of sending an email to multiple users in designer list workflow. Having one list field of type people and group, which allows multiple section. Requirement is I want to send an email to all those users.

I have already tried by assigning a value to one variable and then send email, but it is not working, it takes user name comma separated, not semicolon.

Thanks in advance!

Choose option As like above image automatically taken Semicolons between Names.

Second Option

The Above action Replace , by ; in string, after that the store to variable (output). so you can use email action instead of users you select variable.

Datasource: Workflow variables and Parameter Field from source : Variable(output)

  • good solution. with the lookup filter, this is powerful.

    This action replaces particular substring with another substring. 1. Create New SharePoint Designer Workflow 2013 2. Go to Action under Insert tab and select Replace Substring in String under Utility Actions. You will get following line in your workflow. Replace string with string in string (Output to Variable:output) Commented Dec 28, 2016 at 5:53
