LeaveRequest App improvments

hi all,


I'm trying to polish my LeaveRequest app and I was thinking about few improvments - changes. If anyone know how to implement this please let me know.


  1. Accept / decline leave request from email - when manager receive email he can accept or decline just by clicking specific button
  2. Block manager login only for managers
  3. Create pdf after accepting leave request - will I need to connect PowerApps with Flow? I want to have a pdf file for HR purposes, and there fields like

Leave Request from:

Type of leave:


Approved by:


Thanks in advance!

Quick thoughts 🙂 


1. You can use the Flow Approval action to do this. I have it in a few apps and works well.

2. You can set the Visible property on the button to only be true when User().Email = "YourManagerEmailAddress". Once you get that working then you can make it more scalable.

3. Make PDFs with Flow should have everything you need.
