Flow - Start an approval with email of person who initiates the flow

Hello,
We need information about Microsoft Flow.
We made a flow that approves documents and modifies them.


The request for approval is sent by the email of the creator of the flow, and we will like it to be the email of the person who initiates the flow.


Would you have a solution to give us for this?


Thanks in advance,

Re: Flow - Start an approval with email of person who initiates the flow

Hi @Intrasense-SYS,

 

Are the creator of the flow and the person who initiates the flow same person?

Do you want to share the flow with others in your organization?

If the creator of the flow and the person who initiates the flow are same person, please take a try with the following workaround:9.JPG

 

If the creator of the flow and the person who initiates the flow are different person, you need to change the connection of “Send approval email” action and create a new connection with initiator’s account.

 

Besides, we could not change the connection of “Send approval email” action dynamically when the flow is running.

 

Best regards,

Kris

Re: Flow - Start an approval with email of person who initiates the flow

"Are the creator of the flow and the person who initiates the flow same person?"

No. "two" different person.

 

The flow is share with users, yes.

 

This is not an email approval, but a document approval (In FLOW, it's named "Start an approval", no "send approval email").

 

The project is that the person one, two, or "X" can start the flow (which is done by sharing the flow (this is ok)) but we would like that is precisely the person who launched the flow that sends emails and not the creator of the flow.


It would have to adapt dynamically to the person who will launch the flow.

-

The solution would be to manually create the same flow on each account (Because even if the flow is shared, the flow uses the connection of the creator) or there would be a dynamic solution?

 

Thanks in advance.

this functionality "run parts of the flow with the identity of the user who started the flow" is in the roadmap

 

Cheers

Re: Flow - Start an approval with email of person who initiates the flow

Where is this "roadmap" ?

I need "run parts of the flow with the identity of the user who started the flow".

 

If it works for "Start an Approval" and for "Update File Properties" (for "Modified by" "the user who started the flow"), it would be great !
