approval and email with options - capture who is actually clicking the buttons in the email

Request:

Add the functionality to

capture who actually has clicked on the button in the email of an "approval flow" or an "email with option flow"
(add field "EmailAddress of ActingUser" to dynamic content)

 

Background:

In "email with options", it is possible to capture via dynamic content "SELECTED OPTION" only

In appproval flows, it is possible to capture to whom the approval note was send.

In both cases it is impossible to determine, who actually clicked

 

UseCase / opportunity beyond current functionality:

In my organisation, people frequently delegate approvals and forward requests for actions. 

Today, we can't easily track who the actual actor is that clicks on the buttons.

 

The above will enable to capture these delegations easily.

 

thanks for speedy implementation and broad community suppport.

Status: Planned

We do plan on logging the full history of delegation for Approvals. We do not plan on doing this for the other action (send email with options). However, we plan on adding custom options to the Approval connector actions (see here), which should accomplish this same scenario.

I need this too! I built a flow that sends job offers to various resources through an email with options action with accept, reject options and I need to know who accepted and who rejected! Surprised this isnt standard.

Nothing yet.  I'm trying a different approach. Will provide update if it works out.
