Problems with Start an Approval using custome values - outcome field is missing.

I'm modifying the Approvals Flow for a team member opt-in / opt-out notification such that each team member gets an opt-in request which they can opt out of by clicking a response button. I can set up the modified Approval Flow, but I can't act on the outcome because the Outcome field is missing from the dynamic data for the flow.

The flow runs successfully but there's no response value available to drop into the following condition.

I see that the custom approval is a premium service. Does this mean that the outcome is being withheld? If so, it would've been nice to know before I started.

Can you post a screen shot of your Flow so that I can better assist?
Your issue might be that you need to click on "see more" in Dynamic properties.

There is no 'see more' in the approvals list - see the attached pics. This is all I get.

Here's the setup...


And here's (some of) the dynamic content. There's no Outcome or response field...


I'm a fairly new user so am probably missing something. Thanks for taking a look.

You need to choose 'Start and wait for an approval (V2)' and not 'Start and wait for an approval'.
