Outputs from 'Appending string to variable' in approvals flow not showing up in the resulting approval message in teams or outlook

Hi,

 

I am currently building a flow that gets filtered items from a sharepoint list and appends the values of the items in one of the columns to add to an approval. The start of the flow looks like this:

And then a start and wait for an approval action is added as below with the string variable added in the details section.

I can save and run the flow successfully however when I receive the resulting notification nothing shows up in space where the variable string should show, as below.

I seem to be going in circles trying to resolve it, any ideas?

 

Thanks in advance!

I ended up using a Parse JSON action instead and it seems to have worked - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohSyBtu-QYY

Can you add compose just before sending email and use Terminate flow connector, use variable as an expression  and execute? Then check what is the value of the variable being displayed within compose?
