Approval flow - Approver problem

Hello,

I am building an approval flow that should send a selected document in a SharePoint library for approval.

The approver is not always the same person. I have a column (Person or Group column) in the SharePoint library where the approver user is populated for all documents.

 

I cannot find a way to use the value in that column as the approver in the flow? Can anyone suggest how I make use of that information in my flow.

Thanks

Re: Approval flow - Approver problem

The person or group column has an email address associated with it.  If you use that email from the dynamic content you can address the approval of that document to that person. There are a couple tricks to getting the selected files properties.  Here's a screenshot that shows how.
