Approval with Outlook adding "Approved by" column

Hi there,

Im'm using MS Forms to create items in an SP list. 
When a new item is created, I start a flow to send an email with with options to Outlook for the user to approve. 

Any possibility to pick up who the approver was and adding it to a column in the SP list? As you can see I have added the Approved by column but cannot find anything in the dynamic content to add.

Hello @Orvyn ,

isn't the approver the 'OwnerEmail' user? The same person who receives the email will be also the one who approves/rejects.

Hi @Orvyn ,

 

Could you please tell me the type of your "Approved by" column?

I created a Person type column named Approver, it can be found in dynamic content.

Please try the following workaround.
