Select approvers when initiating a flow and resassign as needed

Hello

I need to replicate something similar to the 2010 SharePoint workflows.

When I initiate a flow, I would like the users to select the approvers on the go from our address list.

The only thing I've found so far is to create a separate list and put the approvers there and then get the flow to look them up. This is very cumbersome. Is there anyway that I can create the flow and the user can pick the approvers dynamically?
Thank you

Hi @xxxxmints ,

 

You could add person field in the list and use For a selected item as the trigger.

 

When you need to create an approval, first specify approver in the person field, and then select the specified item to manually trigger Flow.

Sorry I am confused.

It is a document library - so it will be For a selected file.

Do I add an input?

 

Hi @xxxxmints ,

 

Add person field to Library, allowing multiple selections. Whenever you need to approve a file, fill in approver in the person field, and then select the current file to trigger Flow.

"For Selected File" - Broken!! I've had to resort... - Power Platform Community

 

When configuring Flow, you can configure the email contained in the person field as Approver in the Assigned To field.
