Can we use groups in the ‘Start and wait for an approval’ flow step?

Occasional Contributor

Rather than have a bunch of flows out there that would need updated when a user left, is there a way to use a group or distribution list as an ‘Assigned To’ contact?

 

I’ve been experimenting with ‘Start and wait for an approval’ and error out every time. I want to make sure there wasn’t something I was doing wrong before I admit defeat or contact Microsoft.

 

Thanks!

For anyone that finds this and has the same question I contacted Microsoft and have an answer.

 

Currently it is not supported but the good news is there is a workaround.
