Comment box inside Email


Anyone knows how to show the comment box inside the approval email?

I have seen this in 2 Videos but unable to reproduce it.

I tried Modern Approval but I was not able to show comment box:

I would really appreciate if someone knows how to do it! or was this feature canceled?

Hi @ kattanc123,


Could you please share a screenshot of the approval email which don't have a comment box?


An approval email would arrives with two optional approval format.

When the approval email arrives, you would see the format as your first photo as screenshot below:



And if you click the "Show original message",you would see the format as your second photo as screenshot below:




Please let me know if your problem could be solved.
