Any fix on this? "Send approval email" needs to have an option to change the email address from address so that it doesn't show the user that created the flow.

When using flow connectors to initiate approvals, it is VERY confusing for the approvers when the flow creator for the company is listed as "requested by" -- Please let us remove this or populate it with dynamic content. Thanks!

Why is this taking so long?

This is a massive issue for our company also.

Get it together Microsoft!

I'd really like to see Flow use the same no-reply@sharepointonline.com email that SPD uses now. It makes it easy for users to create Outlook rules that flag/move/highlight emails coming from SharePoint.
