PowerBI Connected to Dataverse, using CreatedBy field to get the Email Address

Hello,

 

I'm struggling to work out the best way to grab the email address based on the CreatedBy field from a Dataverse Table. The CreatedBy field is a Lookup from the systemuser table. When i connect my Dataverse table to PowerBI, it will bring in additional columns as part of the CreatedBy field such as createdbyname. But how do i also do it so it pulls in the internalemailaddress linked to the CreatedBy field?

 

Is there an easy way to do this, or would i need to create a relationship with the systemuser table to get the email address? I feel theres a more straight forward way of doing this since its already pulling in additional columns from the systemuser table such as createdbyname (the users first and last name).

 

Any support would be much appreciated.

Hi @CCEP_Mike,

According to your description, you have a lookup column in the dataverse and you use the Power BI to connect to the dataverse. You want to extract the value in this LookUp column in Power Query in my understand.

This is my test data, and the [systemuser(cr667_assignedto)] is a lookup column:

For example , if you want to extract the [firstname] field , you can just add a column like this:
