Hi @adam123520 , you can include the form submission detail in the body of the approval.

Hi @jonlake - I would prefer to attach the original MS Form as there is detail in there that needs to be reviewed as part of the approval....as a stop gap would you care to show me how?....many thanks

Hi @adam123520 , you can insert the submitted data into an adaptive card. Here is a very useful guide to doing just that. If you want more than a few elements from the submission inserted then I recommend using a compose action.

 

You can't insert the Form and data as it would have appeared to the person submitting it. The Form is a temporary UI for data capture, and beyond that it's just blocks of data.

 

One thing to be aware of when handling Form data in a Flow is that all submitted data, even if you have specifically stated that the field is a number, is interpreted as text. You may need to do a little post-processing using expressions if you need data injected into non-text based fields in a list or Spreadsheet etc.

@jonlake ...much appreciate your insight...will give this a go....have a great time over the festive period!!
