Reassigning Approval if Assignee Out-of-office or to Manager's Assistant

It would be great if there were an action that could return a users's Out-of-office status in order to use that data to reassign an Approval to another user. Likewise, we have many cases where a high-level user (VP, C-level exec, etc.) is technically someone's manager, but wants their assistant (as designated in AAD) to have the ability to approve items on their behalf. For the latter, it would be most helpful if there were some way for Flow to check if the assignee has an assistant and, if so, automatically add them as an Assignee.

@ChadVKealeyagree with this 100%, this is a really good idea!


I made a related suggestion here, and yours is yet another way of how Flow approvals can be improved in general.
