Unable to attach file while using send approval email template

Hello Team


In order to get better understanding of Microsoft Flow I am trting to get hands on the approval process template using "Send Approval Email when new item is added". In this template I am not able to attach file from a list item.


Kingly advice what are the steps that needs to be followed.

Hi Sandeep,


Did you mean that you want to add the list attachment file to the approval email? If so, I’m afraid that this cannot be done so far. There is no way to make SharePoint list attachments required, so flow cannot get this parameter and you can only add some list column content as the email attachment content instead. Also if you want to add attachment to an approval email, I suggest that you use SharePoint library as trigger.
