Using Flow to create Task in Planner - set created by


I am putting together a flow (automate) to handle approvals of documents on sharepoint.  As part of the functionality I am creating tasks within planner for the users involved.  I can create the tasks fine and I am aware there are certain limitations, such as creating a check list.  Are we able to set the creator of the task to someone other than the owner (me) of the flow?  I would like it to be either a generic account or the user who submitted the approval (I have the username of who submits it - I just don't know how to inject this into the create task action).


Is this possible?
