Change the Requester for approvals

I have a flow that I created and shared with others. This flow monitors a generic email and sends an approval when an email comes in. The approval email says I am the one requesting approval. I would like to change that to show the generic email is requesting approval. 

 

UPDATE: I see you can now change the Requestor, but the "Created by" still shows with my name, and that cannot be changed.

Please remove " Created By " or make it changeable.

The "Requested By" piece is confusing to the approver and renders the entire flow useless. Who thought this was a good idea? It makes zero sense.

Need to remove created by acually very annoying for user who is receiving mail for approval.

I vote to remove created by from approval mail

Please remove "requested by" in the email template. This is really confusing and misleading. Managers don't need to know who created the flow. This is a simple change but will make our life much easier. Microsoft please do something about it!

I'm running a holiday approval system from a form, when the approver gets the approval email, at first sight it looks like every request is from me (as the developer) as the 'requested by' takes pride of place in the email. I've read somewhere that it's put there to stop spoofing in the flow, if that's true just hide it, it makes absolutely no sense for it to be visible.

Agree you! wait for reply

Please give us setting options to hide, or put in alternative options for created by and requested by.  I had no idea this was an issue until this very moment. testing out approval flows locally as a developer is a charm until you hit this wall, especially if you work for a company.  Our targeted audiences for approval flows do not need to know that the notification processes came from me.  I'm simply designing the flows, not being the focused on attention for the processes.

Also looking to have this removed. It is counter intuitive given how we use flow in our organisation

Cannot believe this hasn't been resolved for two years. With all the progress that Microsoft has been making this is really disappointing to see.
