Workflow - Pulling over data from Microsoft form to start an approval

Hello!

 

I am in the middle of building a workflow and can't seem to figure out how I can input an email from a microsoft form into an approval flow. This is for a review form that needs to be approved by both the person completing the form and by the person whos review it is. I have created an email field in the form already for the second person who needs to approve and have built a flow that will send to the person who completes the form for approval, but how can I get it to pull over that typed in email from the form into the approval to send them an email?

Hello @j-smith55 

 

Could you share a screenshot of your flow?

 

If you are using the Forms trigger, when doing the second Forms action to get the details of the form (Get response details)

 

You should be able to reference the answer and can be put in an approval action, as the approver.

I dont seem to have this option when I search it under dynamic content. Do I need a connection to an email database to have this?
