Mention users in Teams Channel via Power Automate - MS Forms or Power Apps - Employee Recognition

Learn how to tag or mention users on a Teams Channel via Power Automate. In this demo I show you how to build a Flow that will allow the selection of employees by name that you wish to mention in an automated post to Teams. The concept is for employee recognition / shoutouts. Using Microsoft Forms or Power Apps, we learn how to trigger a flow, handle the JSON array, lookup users and create mention tags. Also see how to recover from the error "The 'from' property value in the 'select' action inputs is of type 'string'. The Value must be an array." using the JSON expression.
