Approval action - attachments no longer supported?

Hi, 

When adding an approval action in Power Automate, it used to be possible to add an attachment - see documentation (last updated June 2020): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/approval-attachments

This 'attachments' field is now missing for any new approval actions I am adding... Is it just me or is this missing for everyone?

Fortunately those I created in the past still show and are working.

My flow also missing the approval attachment feature. Whenever I want to change my old flow, they wont allow me to save it.

 

I accidentally saved my flow, without approval attachment feature.

Thanks @v-litu-msft , I can see the ability to add attachments now.

Could you please clarify whether the attachments are supposed to work within the approval app as well?

I am finding that the attachment is appended to the approval email, and the approval appears within the approval app - but without the attachment. Is this expected behavior?

I'd be keen to understand whether it is expected behavior that approval attachments don't work within the approvals app... unless the approval was created within the approval app?

Hi @DanielaHo,

 

This feature is not online yet. As far as I know, the Power Automate development team is working to solve this problem and release it in the near future. Thank you for your patience.

The attachemenst are still not showing in Team Approval request within app. However they appear in approval mails. Is there some licensing required for adding attachments in teams approval app request?

I think it's a known limitation at the moment.... 😐

The post above was about the field to attach anything going missing entirely. It's back for me now... 

 

When you added an attachment via the approval action in flow, it will only be attached for the email, not in the approvals app.. that's a known limitation I think. I WISH attachments worked in the approval app!
