6.1 - Ability to use field value as email destination for scheduled search

Is there any ability built in to splunk to use a field from a returned search, as a dynamic field in a scheduled search? I'm trying to use a "to" field as the destination (to) field in a schedule email alert.

No need for any App - just use $result.field$ in your to-field.

The sendresults app/command should help you out here. It looks for a field named email_to but a rename can work wonders: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1794/

Thanks - didn't think to look at prebuilt apps. I'll dive in and see what it's all about. Appreciate it.
