Approval Email


I had a few questions regarding the Approval email.


1) Can I change the "Pending Approval" text based on the item status on the SharePoint List? For example, item status is "Pending Review" so the text "Pending Approval" will change to "Pending Review".


2) Can I change or remove the time zone on "Date Created"?


3) For the 4 options that I needed in the approval email, can I expand or adjust the size or make the text to make the options readable?


4) Can I change the "Requested by" to the person name that created the item on the SharePoint List? (I had tried to include in the Requestor by putting "Created by Email" but is still the same.)

1, 2, 3.- I don't think so

4.- That's weird. From my experience, you can add as 'REquested by' a different person than the one whose credentials where used to run the flow. Can you share a screenshot from your current flow design?

Hi @efialttes ,


 For number 4, I had tested out by is still the same and I don't think is because of the design of my flow and I would like to get the credentials for the person that created the item on SharePoint, not the person who used to run the flow


Thank you

Hi @efialttes 


I had tested out the approval action and the options seem to fit well in it:



but why the options in the first picture show the different than the above picture's options in the approval email


Thank you
