Approvals does not accept variable array method for multiple attachments

Hi all,

 

I understand that we can attach multiple attachments in the email function using the variable array method available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFFGeQJQS-g

 

This method works for me when I use the email function. However, if I use the Approval function, it does not work for me. Is this capability not available? Or any clues how I can do it?

Hi!
This is from August 2019, same topic... and the response was 'not supported yet'. Not sure if things have changed since then

Thank you for your response! I noticed that there were new functionalities now to attach static attachments so wanted to see if it's viable.

 

Saw this thread as a recommendation after posting this topic: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Attach-multiple-attachments-to-approval-email/m-p.... Going to test if it works. *cross fingers*
