Disabling Teams notifications on approval flow

I have an approval flow. I have manually set it up to send an email to the approver. However, it also automatically sends a Teams notification though the Approvals feature on Teams. 

 

To avoid confusion, I don't want the Teams notification to be sent. Is there any way to do this, seeing as I am not doing anything on my flow to trigger it?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I am assuming you don't want to disable the Approval app in teams but just the notification.  Also, you don't want to turn off notifications for other things, just Approvals.

 

1. Click on Activity and then the cog wheel icon

2. Under Notifications, click on Edit next to Approvals

3. You can turn off specific notifications relating to approval

I was wondering if you can do this as part of the flow.

 

I have several stages of approval as part of an application process, when testing Teams notifications are coming through at each approval stage saying something along the line of "final approval: approved'.

 

I don't want to confuse the respondent thinking their whole application form has been approved when it's only one stage. Is there a way of turning this feature of through the flow as opposed to needing all individuals to turn this feature of seperately because I wouldn't have the authority to do that?
