I also need to add an attachment to an approval email.

Any update on how to send attachments with flow approval emails?

Advocate I

Using the link is not simply less convenient. The user to whom I wish to send the attachment does not necessarily have permission to view the original list item. It seems I can neither send her the attachment directly with the approval nor automatically share the item with her.

For other users: If you don't need the comments function, you can re-create the Approval with a Send Email With Options action.

Is this ever happening? It seems like this should have been added in the infancy stages of flow....attaching  what you are approving to the email requesting approval.... when is this going to be added? I've spent hours trying to implement workarounds in Flow and Approvals with no luck. 

Advocate IV

There should be provision to add file as attachment in FLOW approval action notifiction.

Mostly approver would like to see all the content including attachments in the mail itself and just approve/reject from same place. FLOW approval action does some part of it but no way to attach file to it. It would be really great if we can attach file in Approval notification.FLOWApprovalAttachment.PNG

I'd be very interested in this feature as well...

If file as an attachment is provided in the approval notification then the dependency on send an email will reduce. Also body of approval notification should rendered HTML because MARKDOWN does not have the capability as HTML
