Requested By field in approval action

Hello

 

I am struggling with the field "Requested By"  which appears on the approval action.

 

When I add in a name in this field my flow fails at the approval assignee field as the name is not recognised in the organisation.

If i remove the name from "Requested By"  the flow successfully runs.

 

I want to add in a name in the "Requested By" field using the "Created By DisplayName" so the approval assignee knows who created the item in the list.

 

How can I do this as in approval emails it keeps showing my name as requested by but I did not create the item as I am the flow owner.

 

Any ideas please ?

Hi @Priya216 ,

 

When you say 'requested by', are you referring to the 'requestor' field? :

If so, you cannot put a display name in here, it must be the createdby email.

Yes, you can add the dynamic createdbyemail to the requestor field and it should work with no further steps needed.

Hi Jason,

Apologies yes its the "Requestor" field, I can use the field "createdbyemail" from the dynamic constant?

I can't hard code an email in here as different users create the items in the list.
