I were trying to embed the MS Flow Approval Page inside a SharePoint modern page using the Embed modern web part, but seems i can not do this, so i am planning to build a PowerApp which reads the MS Flow Approvals requests and then embed the PowerApp inside SharePoint.

This is the MS Flow Approval requests page which i were trying to embed:-

So first step i did is that i add a new PowerApp from CDS >> Approval Requests, as follow:-

then:-

where i will get this Browse screen automatically:-

Now i need to modify this Built-in browse screen, to show URLs which will take the user to the MS flow Approve/Reject screen.. i found that i can access these data..

But i am not sure if i can use/benefit from this data to build a URL to the MS Flow Approvals items, so the user from the PowerApp Browser screen can click on a link which will open this MS flow screen to provide a response:??

    Hello @john john ,

    The above steps cannot make Power App Approval Requests screen shows a link to the Received MS Flow Approval items.
    On the other hand, Power App Approval Requests screen shows a link to the History MS Flow Approval items.

    This is because Power App Approval Requests table logged the history of MS Flow.The Approval Id Index is the ID num of the flow that has been executed.

    Thanks,
