Ability to see and manage approvals from a gallery or table

I’d like the ability to display and manipulate approvals directly from within my app...gallery seems the best fit to me.  This is especially useful for complex workflow processes...otherwise a user is doing there work in power apps and the has to go to a completely different screen to manage approvals or task status. 

Status: New
Comments
Level: Powered On

I have been looking for this exact same post. I too have to build custom workarounds for approvals in powerapps. Most often using a SharePoint list as a proxy and representation.

 

Many of our customers require complex approvals and I would love to represent and improve upon the "approvals" screen from the Flow Admin Center. I have yet to find a way to access those approval items. I mean it is all there. So why not make it accessible? A mere explanation would be much appreciated too.

 

A more detailed description of what I am thinking of:

  1. Make PowerApps capable of retrieving the current user's (pending) approvals from the Flow Admin Center
  2. Optional: allow us to add metadata to those approval items upon creation
  3. We could then enlist all approvals of the current user in a gallery control. Complete with customizable "Approve", "Reject" and "Comment" capabilties
  4. Filtering that gallery would be a breeze based on the approval's metadata (context) and status
  5. Extra benefit: Approvals are not bound to a Flow and its maximum runtime duration anymore
