Add the From field on the action “Send Approval email”

Add the From field on the action “Send Approval email” like the "Send email" Action

Hi, can we get the From Field in Send Approval Email and Send Email with options, It would be very helpfull as I wouldnt have to send approval email under my address as it only confuses users - the fact that it is a automatic email and mixing my work emails with WF emails can be easily overlooked, especially when users have rules for their outlook mailboxes.

 

.thanks

Hi there,

 

It will be nice if a 'FROM' field would be available in the 'send approval email' as we have the option in send an email.

 

Ideally I need to have the email sent form a global email address account to approvers and not have it send from my email address

 

cheers

Agreed, I also need this funtionality as don't want users receiving/replying to emails from me.

Just noticed this is a duplicate of another idea with a few more votes...

Shoot, even if I can't specify other than to have it come from the generic sharepoint or O365 no-reply addresses, that would be an improvement!

The email does come from "no-reply" but, unfortunately, within the email it says "From" and then the name of the Flow author. If this could be removed, that would also solve the problem. At least then, it would be the same as sending an email from a SharePoint Designer workflow.

Need capability of specifying a "donotreply@blah.com" address in from.  Choosing between this address and another address (i.e. the creator of Flow or creator of item) is just an added bonus.
