Approval notification shows site owner instead of requestor

Hi folks, 

 

I created a very simple flow with an approval action. I'm using "Item Created By Display Name" in the notification but when the notification is sent the content shows the Site Owner's name not the author of the item which triggered the flow. Can't figure out why.

What am I doing wrong? 

 

Thanks,

Hi, 

 

A new item created in a list.

 

Thanks, 

Hi @sebnunes 

If the trigger action is 'When an item is created' I hope the expression for obtaining the name would be like the below

triggerBody('When_an_item_is_created')?['Author']?['DisplayName']

I am sure the value should be correct, unless the item is created by the Site Owner.

Hope it helps, please like it or mark it as a solution if it resolves your clarification or issue

Item is not created by the site owner. See below. And expression is as below:
