Flow Approvals Visible in Task List

Good day all.  I'm working on my first large flow using the Automate platform.  Historically, I have worked with SharePoint Designer and Nintex Workflow for this automation.  In these tools, as you know, tasks populate a Task List that everyone can get to (with proper permissions of course).  Furthermore, with Nintex, I can go to the workflow history (as an admin) and see any open tasks.  All of these tools allow me, as an admin, to manage task on the others behalf if I need to.  Is anyone aware of some way that I, as an admin, can do this.  I have found the "Approvals" space in the Automate dashboard, but this is only for "MY" open Tasks, not everyone else's.

Unfortunately your observation is accurate and correct.  If you want that type of control, consider "rolling your own" approval solution in Power Automate.

Thanks for the feedback @ScottShearer .  That's a little disappointing.  On top of my admin access to this information/control, the task lists have been a great way to build "open item" dashboards for my users, where email traffic gets lost in the fray.  It would be great to be able to access these task from the instance of the flow in question.
