Thank you for the update @TCambs

Thanks for working on this.

This is exactly what we are looking for. Smiley Very Happy

 

My workaround for this is to create a seperate email with the files attached then send the approval email. But it might become confusing if multiple approval emails come. 

 

I hope it rolls out soon especially in Thailand.

Quick update: This feature should roll out in the next week or two. There was a slight delay due to some last minute design changes. Thanks for the patience!

@Anonymous It is set to roll out to Preview next week and release to everyone the week after if everything goes smoothly. A small added feature in the release will be an option in the approval actions to prevent people from reassigning. In the meantime here is what the updated UI looks like:

Hi

@TCambswill there be a possibility to take these attachments within flow and put them into doc library for example. For example approval request with attachment was approved and within approve action i can save attachments to library?

@jja We have no plans at the moment to sync attachments with a Sharepoint document library. The attachment data is saved to CDS with the rest of the approval data.

Another quick update: Preview has been experiencing on-going issues this week related to CDS so the release of the attachment feature is probably gonna get pushed back another week or so...
