daily emails for pending approvals

"Start and Wait for Approval" sends an approval request to a recipient and then sends daily emails (once every 24 hours) as long as the recipient doesn't respond to the approval request.  We noticed that the daily emails started about a week ago.  I've been using the approval in a flow that hasn't been edited in months and it didn't use to send the daily emails.  It seems like a daily reminder for a pending approval. Is there a way to turn off the daily emails?

I have the same problem. Everyday at 06 pm I receive a lot of approval e-mails. This started with me on the 18th of December.

Same issue, even after I eliminated the flow and the approval requests in my list...

Yes, same issue here.  Auto reminders would be cool, but we should be able to manage them if this was the intent 🤔

We are also affected by this bug.  Here's hoping this gets fixed soon!

Any update on a fix with this issue?  I'm getting the same approval emails daily at 2:13PM CST where action has yet to be taken on them. 

I'm guessing the developers were away for the holidays and hoping we'll get a fix this week

Hi,

 

Experiencing the same issue with my flow, users are receiving daily email from an approval flow.

Any updates? I saw a post from a week ago suggesting that it would be fixed shortly after the first of the year.

Same issue, also started on the 23rd December. It sends at 11pm at night for us and causing issues for us with the volume of approvals we are getting
