Hi @ JoeAu,

 

As @ScottShearer said,you cannot add attachments to an approval email sent using the Approval action.

 

 

Please take a try to create a flow as screenshot below:

The flow would run successfully as below to send an email with options with attachment as below:

Please let me know if your issue could be solved.

You cannot add attachments to an approval email sent using the Approval action.

 

You might consider using a "Send email with options" action rather than an approval.  This action allows you to add attachments.

 

Please post here if you need more information on this concept.

Thanks Alice.

 

I do not find the ID field on the "Get Attachments" action.

Is there any problem to my Sharepoint list?

Hi @ JoeAu,

 

 

The "ID" in the "Get Attachment" is the same as the "ID" in the "Get item" action.
