Good Morning
I need help with a Logic App.

My app has this steps:

  1. Monitors a sharepoint list when an item is created
  2. when an item is created, sends and approval email to an email address
  3. updates the sharepoint list with the approval answer (approved or rejected) and hopefully with the email address of the person who have clicked the button (approve or reject)

Since the email address of point 2) is a distribution list, how to get the name (email address) of the manager who approved the request?
The objective is to update the sharepoint list and have a trace who really approved the requests.

Thank you for your kind help

    Hi @JO

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! Thanks for posting the question.

    I believe you are using send approval email to send an email to approve or reject the request. The send approve email action returns ApprovalEmailResponse which is of type string having only value as Approve or Reject.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to know which user has approved/reject the request. Anyone who has the right URL (if executing in the private browser too) which you receive at your email address can approve/deny the request.

    Please 'Accept as answer' and ‘Upvote’ if it helped so that it can help others in the community looking for help on similar topics.
