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.

@Jevon I don't know if it makes any difference but I have Name ahead of Content.

For your content field I have it working by going to Expression any typing in body('Get_attachment_content')?['$content'] is this what you have done?  If not then I have a solution on Page 10 of this topic that I have functioning for me.

I'd also be weary of naming the variable 'Attachment' it could possibly be a reserved word although I'm only guessing, I imagine you'd have got some kind of error notification if it was.

@GFinlayRPS  it worked what I did is i used an existing flow that have the attachment process that is working using the send email and i changed it to content. Btw, the attachments are not visible through the mobile app only for emails?

As long as it's working  👍  I've no idea I don't use the mobile app, maybe @TCambs could assist as he is the person at Microsoft working on it.

Power Automate


The mobile app currently doesn't show the attachments. It's in our backlog to do.

Hope to have it resolved 🙂 this will really sell the idea to senior executives who wants everything at one glance....

How can I make the each path as hyperlinks?


I have tried the example "[Link Text](Link URL)" from inside the step "Append to array variable" but it doesn't work.


Can you help me please?

Hi @GFinlayRPS ,


I am trying to create a holiday leave request form, as part of the form people may sometimes want to attach attachments- this goes through the approval method. Can anyone please assist me in doing this, i have tried multiple times and have had no successes.
