Power Automate approval task list

Greetings! Our customer have a workflow built in Power Automate with 3 approval actions.  Now they would like to get a reminder every morning about the approval tasks which are unfinished for at least 2 days. Are there any way to do this? Can we access PA approval task list with a C# app or another PA workflow? Or we must use a list in SharePoint Online to create a new item before every approval task and delete it after finishing the task? 

Thank You,

Gabor

@warrenbarton  there isnt any out of box functionality in Power Automate Approvals for reminders, you will need to implement your own logic. One approach is to maintain status of approvals in database where you are storing your data or SharePoint list, then create a flow with recurrence trigger to trigger daily and check the pending approvals in database or SharePoint list to determine which items require reminders to be sent.
