    RESOLUTION
    To provide consent for non-admin users to create connections from the workflow designer
    1. Login to Azure Portal with a Global Admin account, go to Azure Active Directory > User settings.
    2. Select Yes for the setting "Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf"
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    A dialog indicating admin approval required simply means the SharePoint Online tenant has been configured to not allow non-admins to provide consent to apps, if this occurs speak to an admin to either create the connection or allow the consent (setting in Azure portal).
