This is a much needed feature for my approval flows as well.  Changing the "From (Send as)" field already exists when creating a regualer email in a Flow, I don't understand why this functionality wouldn't be applied to approval emails as well.  

Hopefully this gets some attention from the Microsoft team soon!

Does Microsoft even see this feedback? Strange to me that there's no section for Flow in the User Voice forums.

There is another piece to this -- the person sending the Approval request does not see the status under the "Sent Requests" section of the Approvals Center.


This is in addition to what other commenters have mentioned -- that the email generated by the Flow Approval says that the Approval request came from the user who created the Flow.

The approval request used to be sent anonymously using the Microsoft Flow <> account, however the Approval is now sent on behalf of the connection (my) email address which means that my email address and profile picture appears on every modern approval?? How is this even necessary?? Approvers are not happy about this, it needs to be fixed immediately or I'm going to have to suspend all flows,
