Creating "See my pending approvals" tab for sharepoint users - MS Sharepoint&Flow

Hi Guys,

 

I have created a new sharepoint page with simple MS flow feature working like:

 

1. If a new item on sharepoint list is created send approval request to the people provided in "Approver" field.

2. If accepted, this item changes status on accepted and appropriate message is sent to the requestor.

 

I am wondering how to create one tab for users where they will review your pending approvals - this section will be unique for everyone. For example, I have no approvals requests to approve so my tab will be empty but my friend has two items to approve and these items should be visible on that list only for him - "My pending approvals" Tab

 

Any ideas/suggestion how to start with that? I would be so grateful!

Hi @KonradzajacBAT1, in your SharePoint list you will need a People or Group type column. In my example it is called User. You then create a view of the list (mine is called YourCourses) with a filter that shows the items when User is equal to [Me] as in the image below. On a SharePoint page you can then add a list web part and select the list and the view and it will only show the items in the list where the user in the User column is the same as the logged in user. In other words you only see your own items.

Hope that helps.
