MS Flow / Power Automate allows you to add new administrative users OR those who just execute the flows.  You'll need to add a brand new owner in the general settings of the Flow.  Once they've been added, you'll need to edit the specific step in the Flow that uses your email and use the new owners connection. Look on the top right of the step for the three dots (...) and all the settings you'll need will be here.


Let us know if you need anymore info.

Thanks!..but that still person dependent..and always show person name as requested by-who ever owner of flow..can we make requested by some generic emailed?

@rautchetan27 no that can't be changed.

@RobElliott , actually, you can change the Requestor in the Approval action. It's under advanced settings. The message will still show that the Approval was created by whosever connection is used to create it, but the Requestor field can be set to whichever user is appropriate. See



@Chad_V_Kealey that doesn't change the owner of the flow which was what the question was referring to.

@RobElliott , it answers the second part of his original question (can the Requested by user be changed, which it can)
