How to assign another person from an email notification

Hi,

I'm trying to create a flow where a Manager who is notified of an item that is due for review can then assign that task to someone:

 

So the email reminder flow is triggered by a due date OR when a new item is created.

The Manager is sent an email reminder with a link to the item OR is sent an email to approve the request.

 

Then in that email I want a box for them to fill in the name/email of the person in their department they are assigning that job to.

And the person whose name they have inputted will then get an email to say something has been assigned to them.

 

Any help appreciated!

@RRMX1  as far as i know reassign is not possible from email, user needs to go to Power Automate - My Approvals in order to reassign.

@ChristianAbatathanks, neither are quite what I'm looking for.

 

I've noticed there is a Reassign section under the Start Approval section however it doesn't appear on the email. Can this be part of the email the Manager receives to forward on to someone else?

 

I really only want a way for the Manager to receive an email to say something is due and  decide then who to assign it to depending on who is available at the time.
