I am looking to have a field or 2 on a form for internal and external contacts, and then those specified people will be included as CC's in an email notification.
Is this possible? I have been able to do this for internal users with a people picker but what about external people?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have these external contacts in a list somewhere?
I mean, you can always have a user type an email address into a field and use a workflow to insert that as a CC on a notification. But as for using a people picket... they'd have to be in a list in SP/AD somewhere, I'd suppose..
I tried that but it didn't seem to work so I thought it wasn't possible. Do you need to do anything to the text in the workflow before adding it to the email?
Jesse, if those external users are already in your tenant (they can be added once you share something), then you should also be able to get them using people picker. But there will be no difference - they are going to be in the same "bag" as your employees.
If nothing is already shared with the externals and those users have not yet visited the content shared with them (so they have not yet authenticated to your tenant), then the only option I see is like Mike and Rhia wrote.
Jesse, be aware to separate users when using "External email" option with a semicolon but WITHOUT ANY SPACES BETWEEN So it has to be firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org etc... I guess this bug isn't fixed, but spaces here cause error.
thanks but now I get this error message, any ideas?

Well it means exactly what it wrotes If you added your recipients as a SharePoint Group, so that you'd like to send an e-mail to all members, then to allow Nintex to enumerate them, you have to set group members' visibility to everyone:
