Link to specific Flow Approvals task

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to have a link to a specific task in Flow Approvals page? 

I need to use it in a SharePoint list so that each list item have a field with link to its corresponding task.

 

TIA

so there is 3 actions under approvals.

 

You want to use them like this:

 

1) Create Approval (Setup your approval)

2) Update Item (SharePoint) 

3) Wait for approval, pass ID from 1)

 

the 1) action provides a dynamic content output (Respond Link) which links to the flow task in the browser.

yes but you need to use Start approval and then wait approval as seperate actions.

 

In between you can use dynamic content from start approval to update your sharepoint list item with the link to the task.

Thanks Gristy,

 

Can you please be more specific with this "dynamic content from start approval to update your sharepoint list item with the link to the task"? 

 

So I have a list item on which Flow runs. There are 2-3 approval tasks before it gets to a specific point/status that I need to show. From your comment I assume that, every time an approval is started I get its <some URL> and update list item. This always occurs, not just for the specific approval task I am interested in. Correct?
