Add the From field on the action “Send Approval email”

Add the From field on the action “Send Approval email” like the "Send email" Action

Status: Completed

You can now customize who the Approval appears from - read more here:

Looking forward to this change.  I'm hoping that the solution includes not only the ability to specify the From email address but also the ability to fully format the approval email.


Right now, there is too much extraneous text, including my picture which is a total no-go in my environment.

At least give users possibility to use "Created by" from Sharepoint list as "From" in approval e-mail.

Many great UX comments around the approval email on this thread. Our personal business case would like to see the following items:

  • The 'send from' field should allow pulling from Approvers field listed for the flow
  • The 'requested by' approval email shoudl allow pulling from the flow triggering users; for example, the creator of a SharePoint list item that automatically triggered the flow should be higher on the approval reqest email, and the flow creator should be removed
  • Add or remove fields in the approval email itself, much like the confirmation emails sent to the users
