Approval with attachments

The scenario is that the user will add attachment to the SharePoint list item. Then the flow will be manually triggered for approval but the approval must contain the attachment. This is the only option I found in the Approval action:

However, it did not display the attachment.

 

What is the correct way to display the attachment in the approval flow?

Re: Approval with attachments

Adding an Attachment to an Approval Email In Flow is a highly requested Flow Idea and is currently marked as PLANNED. At the moment, your best bet is to include a direct link to the file within the Flow email itself, see the Item link option.

Re: Approval with attachments

Hi @almendoza26 ,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

As @Brad_Groux  suggested, please try to insert dynamic content Item link in the Item link field so that the approver could click the link to check the attachment.

 

Further, there is another action “Send email with options” could be used to attach files in the email for approval.
