Re: Can't approve fSarom Approval mail in Outlook client

Same issue here. My crew is on Outlook 365 for the Desktop in Windows 10. At times, the approval process will "not load" into Outlook as it should, and instead "fallback" to a email that has blue button links which approvers need to click on, to then go to the Power Automate web site to approve requests. 


We have cases with our team, when we run an automated flow, the approval email will load with the fallback look.  But if we click "replay" on that email, or some other Outlook action, the approval email will correct itself.


Microsoft, is this a slight UI bug?  Is this something you guys are aware of? If so, is there a remedy on the way to making the approval process consistent within Outlook 365?
