Cannot see cancel approval button in an approval notification.

Hello there,

 

I have tried the below new feature about canceable approval.

https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/2019-release-wave-2-plan-and-may-updates-for-microsoft-flow/

 

So I have built a new flow create an approval (V2) and wait for an approval together.

However, I cannot see the 'cancel approval' button when I receive an approval notification.

 

Where can I see the 'cancel approval' and cancel it?

Re: Cannot see cancel approval button in an approval notification.

Only the maker of a Approval can cancel the Approval.  Go to the Sent tab in Approvals in Flow.  Click on the Approval you want to cancel and an information panel will pop on the right hand side with a cancel button. Click that and the Approval will disappear.  Note: it doesn't do anything with the email the user recieved.  Just the Approval in the Flow web and mobile client.

Thank you very much for your response. It seemed requester can cancel approval requests.

I do not think it can be useful in general because not many makers of approval flow request an approval..
