How do I build a deeplink to a specific Approvals task in Teams, based on the Approval ID?

The closest I could get was a deeplink to the Approvals tab: https://teams.microsoft.com/l/entity/7c316234-ded0-4f95-8a83-8453d0876592/approvals

    It's not the ideal, since it's outside Teams, but I found a way to open a single Approval instance with this link:

    https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/<environment-id>/approvals/received/<approval-id>

    It will open the Approval instance in the Power Automate's Approvals tab.

    Hi @AnndersonPimentel, @SokiGuo-MSFT,

    is there any progress in solving this problem? The described solution using PowerAutomate is only partially functional, because PowerAutomate approvals are only displayed in the narrow bar of the right part of the browser and for example the data in the embedded table(markdown) is not displayed >> only the left part of the table is displayed >> this problem has been described for many years and is not solved. In teams it is not possible to call specific approval URL at all. Would it be possible to get rid of bugs so that I can offer the user one 100% functional solution???

    Thanks for the answer and the solution
