Cant approve in email any longer.. now takes me to the approval center

Hi

 

I have an approval flow that sends an email, but I can no longer approve within the email.  It is taking me to the approval center in Flow when I select the Approve or Reject button and no longer letting me approve/reject and add comments within the email. 

 

Any suggestions on how to allow the user to approve and reject without going to the approval center in Flow...  I thought this used to work so you could approve within an email...

 

Maybe I am missing something obvious

 

Thx

Yes, you'd want to use Create an approval (V2) which would allow you to create your own custom email, and add the Accept/Reject options.

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps we could likely better assist you.

Make sure you are using the Send an approval email action and that the User options includes Approve, Reject as in below screenshot (wiki post😞

Re: Cant approve in email any longer.. now takes me to the approval center

I am using a "Start and Wait for Approval" action.  Is that the issue? 

Do the approval actions require the user to go to the approval center and they can not  approve within an email?

I'm not finding where you see this Create an Approval.  It's not appearing in my action controls.

I tried the Email with options - but it breaks the next step that needs the approval response.
