Issue:  You want to be able to pull the values contained in a multiple person/group field in a SharePoint list into a workflow, and insert them into the CC portion of the send email workflow action.

A most brilliant colleague of mine was able to find a quick and easy workaround for this pesky issue.

In this scenario, the users to be CC'd are contained in a multiple person/group field in the list that the workflow is running on, called 'Assigned To Secondary'

To solve the problem:

  1. set workflow var:SecondaryAssigned to CurrentItem:Assigned To Secondary (formatted as a string)
  2. if workflow var:SecondaryAssigned is not empty
  3. set workflow var:SecondaryAssignedAddr to workflow var:SecondaryAssigned (formatted as email address, semicolon delimited)
  4. send email
  5. in the CC portion, select workflow var:SecondaryAssignedAddr (formatted as a string)

Hope that helps...!
