Requesting sign-off approvals on your OneDrive files


Microsoft has integrated out-of-the-box Microsoft Flow templates directly into OneDrive! With the new Request sign-off template, you can easily send your OneDrive files out to co-workers for review. You’ll be able to specify who the reviewer(s) are at the start of the workflow. You’ll be notified via email once one of the reviewers has approved the file.

Let’s walk through how the new flow template works:

  1. Select the file you want to route for approval.
  2. Go to the Flow dropdown in your menu bar and select Request sign-off.

  4. Type in the name(s) of the people you’d like to review your document. If desired, type in a custom message for your reviewers.
