Hello @Samuels315 

 

Could you confirm what the value is in your dynamic content of 'Created By'. The error is suggesting that it cannot find the users email for the approver.

 

You could add a Compose action right before the Start and wait for approval action and put the 'Created By' value inside the Compose. Than run the Flow
