Approval request flow

Hello everyone


I'm trying to build a flow that sends a approval request to the approver. I'm using Microsoft dataverse as database (I'm building the app in Teams) and it triggers when a row is added to a given table.


I'm stuck in the next step, "Start and wait for an approval": as seen in the screenshot, I have selected the approval type as "Approve/Reject", gave it a tittle and assigned it to my e-mail. 

I've read in foruns that I must add a Requestor, usually the creator of the request. However, none of the options I have available seems to work,. Any Idea how can I make it work?

Thank you!

Requestor is not required but here is a link to a post that shows how to obtain the Created By email...

Hi, thank you for the help, I'll try it as soon as I can.

If I don't fill the Requestor field, there's no error message, but the flow keep running forever, and I never get the email to approve or deny the request. Any idea why?
