Can a requester include a comment before sending an attachment for approval? Can approver edit attachment and send it back with rejection?

Hello, I am helping my team implement Power automate to help our workflow. I am trying to find more information on the approvals in Power Automate.


I want to use approvals when a form is added to a teams or sharepoint folder. When the requester adds it to the folder, it will trigger the flow. But before the flow is triggered, can the requester add a comment or detail? I want to be able to track how many time the form has gone through the flow. The requester can say "second time submitting for approval" or "please look closely at ___".


My second question is for when the form is rejected, will any edits on the attachment be sent along with the rejection? I want to use both the comments section and the approver actually showing the edits that need to be made in the attachment.


Also if you have any recommendations that you think would fit better with what I am trying to do, please let me know!

Just an idea from my site. What about realizing with MS List and a comment field. Keep the item in the list until its final approval and then copy it to the folder.

Hi @ehernann2 ,


Do you want to the approver can see the request message and modify the content of the file during the approval process?

I assume you have this in SharePoint library.




The approver can click the link to modify the document and update it to SharePoint.

I just looked into MS list and this may be the missing piece to this workflow I've been looking for! Thank you!!
