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

Hi @ ErichH,

 

 

As @ScottShearer said, capturing who is actually clicking the buttons are available for " Start an approval" actions. 

However, capturing who is actually clicking the buttons in the "send email with options" is not supported in microsoft flow currently,

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

The approver name, email, etc. are all available for approval actions. 

 

I don't see any information from a "email with options" email other than the actual response.  So, I don't see any way of determining who responded if there email was sent to more than one person.

hellp Scott,

 

Indeed, you are correct and I know / see that.

 

Yet there are cases where people do or want to forward the email and then approver <> person who clicks.

 

hence my question to the community, whether other people have found a way or see the same need as I do
