Is it possible to approve a power automate approval action in PowerApps?



the datasource of my app is a sharepoint list.


When an item is submitted in the app, a flow is triggered which has a 'start an approval' action which sends the approver an actionable approval email with 'approve' or 'reject' buttons and a deep link to the record in powerapps.


When the link is clicked the item to be approved opens in powerapps for the approver to view but to approve it they need to navigate back to the email and click the 'approve button' which is a jarring experience.


Is there a way to add a button on the powerapps screen of the item to be approved, that can approver can seamlessly approve instead of going back to the email?


i.e. is there a way to connect this button to the start and approval action in flow?


Thank you.

No, a user can only create or start/wait for approvals.
