Hi, I am trying to do a simple approval flow from the template. However, after clicking approve, the email does get sent back to the requester. The following picture is how i created my flow
I found out that it does not grab anything from the created by email.
I also discovered that if I grab the created by DisplayName, i will get something like the below i:email@example.com
Please help and advice.
I'm just trying to create a dummy test case scenario.
My SharePoint list is created by clicking on "new" > "list".
I added some random fields like "subject" which is a single line of text.
Created By is auto generated by sharepoint.
Did you make sure that you have created this flow using the template? I just tested with the template "Send approval email when a new item is added" and the dynamic content in the "Send email" field should be like this:
I have tested with this flow and it runs successfully:
Please try to recreate this flow and test again.
Notice that my template was filled with "Author.email" but yours was "Created by email", please try to recreate this template and make sure that you didn't change this field and then have a test.
