Did you mean: 

approval and email with options - capture who is actually clicking the buttons in the email

Request:

Add the functionality to

capture who actually has clicked on the button in the email of an "approval flow" or an "email with option flow"
(add field "EmailAddress of ActingUser" to dynamic content)

 

Background:

In "email with options", it is possible to capture via dynamic content "SELECTED OPTION" only

In appproval flows, it is possible to capture to whom the approval note was send.

In both cases it is impossible to determine, who actually clicked

 

UseCase / opportunity beyond current functionality:

In my organisation, people frequently delegate approvals and forward requests for actions. 

Today, we can't easily track who the actual actor is that clicks on the buttons.

 

The above will enable to capture these delegations easily.

 

thanks for speedy implementation and broad community suppport.

Status: Planned

We do plan on logging the full history of delegation for Approvals. We do not plan on doing this for the other action (send email with options). However, we plan on adding custom options to the Approval connector actions (see here), which should accomplish this same scenario.

This is a much needed option!!! Please get this done as soon as possible.

The planned enhancement does not quite meet my need. I am using Send Email with Options in order to provide multiple Approval options....in my case a document needs to go to multiple groups for approval and not necessarily in a defined order, in fact it can go back and forth multiple times. I use the Send email with options to allow the user to choose the approval path they need the document to take. The current approval action does not allow for this type of scenario.

I want to track WHO is responding to the options for an audit history, unfortunately the Version History of the document only tracks the connection name and not the actual person responding to the email so that is of no use either.

I need this too! I built a flow that sends job offers to various resources through an email with options action with accept, reject options and I need to know who accepted and who rejected! Surprised this isnt standard.

Any update on the progress of this needed feature?

Nothing yet.  I'm trying a different approach. Will provide update if it works out.
