Add an "Assigned to" field when approver in action

Hello All, 


I have build a Sharepoint list (form) which triggers an approval process assgined to specific managers. What I am failing to accomplish is that I need to add a field (Person search) during the approval process. So to put it simply, when a manager goes in to approve a request, I want them to see a field where they can assign a person as owner of that request. 


How can I do that? I haven't been able to find an option that allows me to add a field other than the Approve/Reject and Comment fields. 


Thank you in advance!

As far as I know, I think there is option for user to provide any input while approving from Power Automate.

@bbbb There is currently no way to add an assign-to field for the manager to see while approving/rejecting a request. You can add information to the body of the Approval email the manger gets but there is currently no way to add a field (empty) or otherwise to the approval email.
