I wonder how to send email notification to submitter of approval process. When I trying to set email alert I see only Creator/Owner and nothing similar to Submitter. What will be the best way to accomplish that?

I can think of one of the approach. You can create a custom field and in the initial submission action populate that field with current user. The current user will be the one who submitted the record for approval. And use that field to send out the mail when record approves.

  • I wonder if there is any possibility to get Information about submitter without adding additional fields? Oct 21, 2022 at 15:45

  • Record triggered flow started when status change to Approved will be good idea? Oct 22, 2022 at 13:17
  • But in that case you will not be having submitter email. You will get approver email address. Oct 22, 2022 at 13:21
  • Oh. Yes. User which run the flow will be approver. Oct 22, 2022 at 13:49
