Adding an Attachment to an Approval Email In Flow

You should be able to attach a document to an approval email using flow. 

Status: Started

We are now working on the functionality to attach files to Approval requests.

@delaney_langsto 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...

Hi Stephen,

 

By when this new functionality will be available? We really need this badly. Thanks

 

Best Regards,

Shiv

Approval attachments has been completed and in internal testing for the last couple weeks (It's been released to Preview but Preview environments don't have access to CDS). We are onboarding to a new process to upgrade the Approvals packages for CDS instances and attachments is tied to a new Approvals solution version. I will update the thread when attachments is fully released over the next couple of weeks and there will probably be a blog post about it too.

When this is going release for all?
