How to rectify Teams approval requester

Hello,

 

I have created a flow for SharePoint list approval with just one approver and one requester per flow. Everything is working fine except, approval is also sent by MS Teams alongside with outlook email. When Outlook email is sent to the APPROVER, It is generated by Power Automate which is desired but for the same MS Teams Approval, It is requested/generated by the owner of the flow (which is me) and not Power Automate or the actual requester. I haven't added Teams in my flow anywhere but I believe as a part of Approval connecter it is auto populated with it alongside with the Outlook Email.

 

Is there a way I can change that in MS Teams approval or anyway to resolve this issue? Because for all the approvals, they get my name as requester instead of the actual requester user in MS Teams but for Outlook Email approval is fine.

 

@RezaDorrani I have been following your footsteps from the approval cookbook series in youtube, would you be able to help me with this

 

Thanks in advance.

Akshay

@AkshaySolanki  there is a requestor parameter in approval action, provide the requestor email address in that parameter to show up requestor name instead of your name
