Show approvals in model-driven app

We are using a custom model-drive app to create approvals (new row in custom table triggers approval cloud flow). Now, teams was updated and has the Approvals app directly integrated into Microsoft Teams.


Now, some users prefer to use the Approvals App in Teams, instead of the model-driven app. Is it possible to show approvals in a model driven app or trigger a flow when a new approvals is created in order to update my custom table?

Hi @kv 


Currently, this is not doable directly (embedding the approvals in model driven app). As a work around, you can create another table and create a row in it everytime an approval is created. You can then have this embedded on the model driven app and a user can provide a response here. Once that happens, you can trigger another flow to update the actual approval. Not the best solution but a should work if this is a requirement. 


Hope this Helps!

Thank you for your answer.


Can you further explain how you "create a row in it every time an approval is created". How do I know that a new approval is created? There is no trigger in my environment for this event.
