Is it posible to remove "from Name" from approval email generated by MS Flow



I ran into a little problem regarding MS Flow Approval/"Start an approval". After the setup and test of it, it does send the approval mail. but for some reason, the mail contains a name that I did not specify to be included anywhere.

from Carsten Løvbo Andersen



Is there some way to remove this information?

Hi @Loevbo,


Could you share a full screenshot of the flow? I am trying to reproduce this issue on my side.


I have made a simple test, there is no From in the approval email body, it is Requested for instead in the original message part. Please check the following screenshot.



Best regards,

Mabel Mao
