In SharePoint Designer 2013 workflows we have the option of a task process to send tasks to a SharePoint Permission group.

How does one replicate this functionality in Power Automate/Flow? I don't see any options to assign an approval process to a group, only one email at a time.

You can assign approval tasks by following these steps:

  • Get all users from an AD group
  • Get all users from a SharePoint Group using SharePoint HTTP step: _api/Web/SiteGroups/GetByName('SiteName Members')/users
  • Get all emails from all of these users
  • Create a new variable that will contain a concatenated string of all emails with a semicolon as a separator
  • In the approval step, assign approval tasks to the variable
  • 1
    The SharePoint permission groups aren't in AD though?
