Approve requests on your mobile device by using Power Automate
If a cloud flow identifies you as an approver and you've installed the mobile app for Power Automate, you receive a push notification whenever your approval is requested.
This article walks you through a few common scenarios that you’re likely to encounter while you manage approval requests in the mobile app for Power Automate.
The images in this topic are from an Android device; however, the experience on iOS is similar.
To complete this walkthrough, you need:
- An Android or iOS device running the mobile app for Power Automate.
- To be designated as the approver in an approval flow.
- Pending requests for approval.
View pending requests
Open the mobile app for Power Automate.
Select APPROVALS in the upper-right corner.
View all pending approvals:
