I am looking for a way to Manually enter a email address when I am about to start the flow - where as Approval process in flow contains a per-populated Assigned to field where I have to Mandatory assign a email address while building the flow.

Can this be done and how?

  • Which trigger are you using for your flow? You can use manual trigger and ask the user for email address as a input. – Ganesh Sanap Nov 17 '20 at 9:57

In the trigger "For a selected item", you can add an input like the below:

Below steps worked for me, please check if it's working for you:

  • Create a flow with trigger "Manually trigger a flow" trigger. And select email option. enter image description here

  • Add "Create approval" action and set email property as assigned to in this action. enter image description here

  • Set other values in above action as per your need.

  • Run the flow and pass email address of the user you want to set as assigned to. And click run now.

  • Assigned user will get email with approval message card in that as shown below: enter image description here

Note: The email address you pass here should be the Microsoft 365 licensed account user.
