Hi @JoeAu, at the moment you can't add an attachment to an approval. You can link to it but not attach it. However Microsoft have started work on providing this feature: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Adding-an-Attachment-to-an-Approval-Email-In-Flow/idi...

Hi @JoeAu ,

 

As @RobElliott said, add the attachment to the approve email is not supported in microsoft flow currently and the product team are working on the functionality to attach files to Approval requests.
