Approval Flow - Functionality like "Request sign-off"

Hello,

 

Using the Microsoft Flow site, I have successfully created an Approval Flow "For a selected item". 

 

Looking at the way that "Request sign-off" works - when you have selected a doc to request a manager signoff on - over to the right in SP there are 2 forms to fill out one of which is "Approver". 

 

My question - How can I add that functionality to my flow? I want the user to be able to enter who they need to approve the doc rather than hardcode those names in the flow like I am doing now...

 

Any help will be appreciated 🙂

Re: Approval Flow - Functionality like "Request sign-off"

Hi @beginAgain,

 

Are you using the action Start an approval in your flow?

Do you want to enter the Approver likes the way Request sign-off works? In another word, do you want to specify the Approver when you fire the flow?

Could you share more details on your flow?

If your flow is triggered by For a selected item, you could add an output Email, then select the email output for the Assigned to field.

Hello @v-yamao-msft

 

Very cool. I had seen those but I didn't know that is what they did - this is my very 1st flow and I am learning on the fly. It does change the overall process of the flow (from the users standpoint) so I am checking that out some more and I will get back to you.

 

TYVM 🙂
