Re: change created by in approval flow

Hi @yustinus79,

 

The created by is the Flow owner, cause the Flow is yours, so every time the Approval created by will show your Email address.

Export the Flow as a zip is correct, you could let each organization has their own Flow, let another user import the zip file into their Flows, then the Approval created by will shows Email address of the users.

 

If there is an MS Form in the Flow, I think transfer service account is impossible, you could ask another user to follow your Form to create a new one.
