Yellamaraju asked: "Is "les premiers au courant." an idiomatic expression." ?

What about "la première à le savoir"? See = "Quand j'aurais pris une décision, vous serez les premiers au courant." (When I've made a decision, you'll be the first to know.)

Bonjour Yellamaraju !

Yes, it's an idiomatic way to say "to be aware of something / to know" = "être au courant".

You can also use "être le/la/les premier(s) à le savoir" which is literally "to be the first [one(s)] to know [it]".

This sentence could therefore have also been:
"Quand j'aurais pris une décision, vous serez les premiers à le savoir."

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
