Include Flow Tasks in Reminder Emails

Hey folks,

 

We're working on a content review and lifecycle management Flow that is attached to a library in SharePoint. The approval parts of the process require reminders to the various actors to let them know they have outstanding tasks.

 

The issue - how do I include the actual action in the followup emails? It's not so helpful to remind someone they have to search their inbox, or go to Flow's approval center with process level titles - not document level. 

How do I include the approval task in the follow up emails going out?  Also, I seem to remember the ability to embed approval tasks (and others) in SharePoint lists for direct action from Ignite last year.  Was this implemented?  Thanks all

Re: Include Flow Tasks in Reminder Emails

 

Hi @AndrewGeddes ,

 

As far as I know, we can only complete the approval request through Approval email/Flow app/Approval center. So you can only add the Approval center link to the reminder email and go to the Approval center to complete the approval.

Or add the details of the approval email in the Reminder mail so that Approver can search for the corresponding Approval email.

 

As for the "the ability to embed approval tasks (and others) in SharePoint lists for direct action from Ignite", it seems to be the content mentioned in this blog, please check it and see if it helps:
