Power Automate Flow Approval and new MS Teams Approvals app

Hello,

 

I recently noticed the new approvals app in MS Teams and love the idea.  It simplifies the approvals process for the average user.  The down side is the inability to select groups as approvers. I created a sharepoint list with a Power Automate flow as a workaround, but I am having issues with attachments portion.  The flow works perfectly when I create a new list item.  The members of the selected group are all added as approvers.  The attachments show up in the PA Approvals section and the email for the approval, but the MS Teams app does not show the attachments.

Hi @garrywilmeth,

 

I am afraid there is no way could make the attachment uploaded via Flow show in the approval details within Teams.

It is a new app in Microsoft Teams, and the only way could make the attachments visible is to create the approval request on the Teams side, and upload it from the local folder.
