Power Automate's new functionality, the Approval of Text action, is discussed in depth in this tutorial. This new action initiates an automated text approval process and pauses until it is finished, with the first responder receiving the approval. It is especially useful for implementing human supervision in AI-driven activities such as extracting details from an email or generating a CSV file in Power Automate. The approver will have a "suggested text" which could be accepted or modified. The approved text is recorded under the "accepted text" property. This function can also be used in conjunction with SharePoint for approval scenarios.
Approval of Text Action is a powerful tool within Power Automate. Offering a seamless way to integrate checks and balances, this function ensures that outcomes deriving from AI processes undergo human supervision. It introduces flexibility by accepting or modifying suggested text. Coupling it with SharePoint opens gateways to practical approval scenarios. Furthermore, it can mimic a custom app, making it a versatile tool for many use-cases.
In this tutorial, you will learn about the new Start & Wait for an Approval of Text action in Power Automate workflows. This action starts an automated text approval process and then waits for it to complete. You'll learn how to leverage the action to add human oversight for AI generated actions, such as extract information from email body and generate CSV file in Power Automate. Additionally, you'll explore practical approval workflow use-cases and learn how to integrate text approvals seamlessly with SharePoint lists. You'll also see how to leverage "suggested text" options for effortless decision-making, and how to use workarounds for scenarios involving multiple approval of text options, simulating a custom app.
