How do I add a link to the email in flow with a multilevel approval flow? Link attached to outlook which will approval update into sharepoint site

Hi Everyone. 

 

I tried to do this with Abosulate URI but I must not be doing it right. 

How do I use the Absolute URI function along with a multilevel approval flow? Trying to add the link to the attachment into the email section of the approval process.  I don't need to use the Abosolute URI function as long as I get the output that is needed.  I have a multi layer approval flow but need a link to the attachment in the email (not an attachment just the link).  Can someone show me the steps needed to do this on flow?

Hello Panda,

 

We solved this over a screen share session but I would like to write the answer here so that if anyone else is facing the same issue they can benefit from it.

 

 

So the trick is to Add a Get attachments action which will expose the Absolute URI in its body.

 

You can get the Body of the Get attachments action from the Flow run history.

 

All you need to do after that is add a PARSE JSON action where as an input you need to provide the body.

 

This action will expose the Absolute URI that you need to grab and include it in your Start and Wait for an approval action.
