I am so glad I went through this whole thread of 14 pages.  I have been up for 2 days trying everything I can think of to take a new document put into a dropbox folder and attach it to an email for multiple levels to click approve.  I just figured I wasn't doing something right.  Glad to hear its in development, but sad to hear it's not done.  

 

What is the status??

It's rolling out this week, should be available everywhere by next Monday morning (our deployment train starts on Tuesdays). Working on a blog post for it.

Glad to see that the attachments are available with the approvals now. I'm not able to attach multiple attachments and I'm using the same method I did for send email with options. Do you know what's going on?

Also, where did the comments section go in the approval?

This is not the outcome i expected...

I expected that for example when you get an approval email you can attach files and attachments go to second approver and now i can insert attachment from somewhere and for some reason

Is there any way to email the physical documents, not just the links?

@Aiyaa To attach multiple attachments use an array variable and use the below formula to append values 

 

{
"name": @{items('Apply_to_each_45')?['DisplayName']},
"content": @{body('Get_attachment_content')['$content']}
}
