Table Buttons to Submit Changelist Form in Django

I currently have the following admin page with a set list_editable fields in my ActivityLogAdmin model.

enter image description here

When I click "Save" on the bottom of the admin page, the request.POST data gets submitted to my form. I have the following method under my ActivityLogAdmin class:

def get_changelist_form(self, request, **kwargs):
    return ActivityLogChangeListForm

However, I'm trying to add one custom button for each entry in my change list, so when I click it, the POST data should also be passed to a view so I can handle that data. However, I can't seem to pass this request.POST data of when I click the button to the view. Here's my attempt:

def approve(self, obj):
    url = reverse('admin:activity_log_approve', args=[str(])
    return mark_safe(f'<button name="approve_button" type="submit"><a href="{url}">Approve</a></button>')
approve.short_description = 'Edit status'

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^(.+)/approve/$', wrap(self.approve_view),

def approve_view(self, request, object_id, extra_context=None):
    print(request.POST['approve_button']) #Is None :( Tried with request.POST only as well
    form = ActivityLogChangeListForm(request.POST)
    if form.is_valid():
        return HttpResponseRedirect('/panel/events/activitylog')

Do you guys know what I'm doing wrong? It's been a loong time since I worked with Django and I've wasted 2 days already on that :(

Thanks a lot in advance!
