Is it possible to send an approval email to an email address outside the organisation and have them approve or decline the request without having a user account within my organisation?
I have a travel request process but the security assessment team we use is external to the organisation. Their approval is the first of many in a linear process.
I assume that it should be possible to send an approval email to external approvers.
If you are using the “Office 365 Outlook – Send approval email”, you could enter static email addresses of the approvers in the To field, then they will be able to receive the Approval email once the flow is triggered.
Please try it on your side.
