Re: Fail to send approver in start an Approval

Hi @Naitikpatel,

 

The Assigned to field under the Approval should be filled in with the User Email that within your same organization.

 

It will not work for external Emails.

 

The errror message "Found no matching users for '' " means there is no such user account exist in your organization.

 

If you would like to send Approval to external Email Address, then please consider switch to 

Office 365 Outlook->Send Approval Email Action,

Which allows to send Approval to external Email Address.
