Get Approver name in Sending email with Options to multiple people

Hi,

 

I have a flow, which triggers on when an item is Created/Modified. It sends an email with options(Approve, Reject) to the email distribution group. So, I am trying to get the Name of the approver who clicked "Approve" in the email.

 

Please let me know if you have questions.

 

Thanks

Re: Get Approver name in Sending email with Options to multiple people

Hi @Snacham ,

 

After the email generated by Send email with options is sent, as long as one of the specified Approvers clicks on User options, Send email with options action can only output SelectedOption, and it is not able to find which Approver clicked on Approve or Reject.

 

This process is similar to the First to respond of Approval action, but Response Body of Send email with options action does not contain Approver information.

If it is a distribution list, the Approval action will also not work. I am afraid there is no suitable way to achieve your needs.

 

If you want to get the info of the person who clicked on the option within the Approval email sent via the "Send email with options" action, please consider voting for similar idea:
