Link to Approval Website from Sharepoint List View

Hi,

 

I have an approval flow created with multiple levels of approval.  Is there any way that I can add a link to the sharepoint list that brings the user to the approval website instead of having to use the link sent to them in their email.

 

If they could access the approvals straight from the list if would work much better.

 

Thanks,
Paddy

Hi @pedanticpad ,

 

Power Automate and SharePoint have yet to integrate similar features.

You could consider referring to the methods mentioned in the following links to try to achieve your needs:

Thanks very helpful, however I can only see something about executing a flow not approving a request.  The issue is I have a multi stage approval process where the 2nd stage requires a lot of extra fields to be filled, as this is in the middle of the flow it can't execute the flow.

 

The users at this level could be working on 10 or more approvals at a time and going back through their emails to find the approval email or going into the approval centre isn't really workable.

 

If anyone know the CustomRowAction to open the approval link then the code you pointed me to will work but I can't find anything?

 

Thanks!

 

Hi @pedanticpad ,

 

Unfortunately, I am afraid that this requirement cannot be achieved through the existing functions of Power Automate.

Please consider submitting your suggestions in the ideas forum so it might be considered for future releases.

This can be achieved , see the blog from Anup where he was able to achieve it .

Though MS should try to provide this kind of feature. MS Team doesn't understand that in practical world , it very difficult for approves to scrapes through email even in Flow center it piles up and no sorting / filtering available in flow approval center and so in demo work these things appears sweet but in real world its pain hence we have to come with such tricks.
