    Start an approval doesn't exist anymore…how would I do this now?

  2. Jaap Steenis 2 years ago

    What happens when I use the option First to Approve, when I have a group of users in the same department covering each other? In classic Sharepoint this was covered but what about Flow, suppose a second approver will try to approve after the first one was already done for that same initial request? Also the 3 different Approval options are confusing. Can you eloborate on this, 🙏 thanks

    Hi Jon, great demo. I have a question, did you add some plugin to do approvals from outlook client?
    I ask this because I did the same as you, but when the approval arrives in my mail is redirected to the Microsoft flow page instead of making the approval in the outlook client. Thanks.

    I have something like this set up for my staff for approval of time off requests. Instead of a sharepoint list, my flow trigger is submission of an MS form. I have set the flow up as a team flow with a few owners. The problem I'm having is that no matter who submitted the form, Flow will send the approval request saying "Alyssa Siegel has Requested Approval" when really that is the person who submitted the form. Even though I mention who submitted the form further down in the approval body, it confuses lots of people. Is there a way to change this? Thank you

    Hi Jon, learning loads from your videos. Is there a way to capture the comments on an approval flow? The scenario is where something has been rejected and requires further action. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated! Cheers! Martin

    Is there a way to make 3 sequential groups of approvals but concurrent approvals with in each group?

  12. Marco Anacleto 1 year ago

    Hi Jon, first of all thanks for this useful video. I´d like to ask you help because i have used the "Send email" option inside MS Flow, and in the body of the email i use an amount that comes from a list that i created in the sharepoint. The issue in this way is that the amount comes without the correct format (currency). Please, how to format this amount into a currency format??? Thanks again!.

    Unfortunately the key "Start an Approval" flow action HAS BEEN DEPRECATED by Microsoft. The content of this video is no longer viable. I do love the style of this video because it lets me get to what I need quickly

    Video is good but speed makes it very difficult for Beginners

  16. If the third approver rejects it is there a way to make it go to the previous approver without starting from beginning? That is the only challenge I have

  17. Tony D 1 year ago

    Can you please update this for current flow operations. There is no longer an option for Start an Approval, all there is Create an Approval, and those attributes do not have Response and the other Create Approval and Wait for a response and the only attribute there is Responses and the condition is not properly evaluating the value even though I send an email afterward with the response details and it clearly shows that Reject was selected. Very frustrating, thanks for your help

    Hi Jon, I love the way you make tutorials. From work flow we receive approval email from maccount@microsoft.com but I want to change it and use organization email. Like approval comes from organization's email instead of maccount@microsoft.com. I tried and searched I lot but couldn't find any way. Can help me to achieve this. Thanks

    Great explanation , but I have a challenge for you what if you need to have with the same approved process a pen input for signature i.e. once the new item created on the list a word document generated and then routed for approval and each approver needs to approve and sign ( the signature will appear on the document), on last approval and signature the word document to be converted to PDF 🙂

    I understand the work around that flow, but where do we keep track of the approvals?

  30. Fish Lim 11 months ago

    After the approval flow is completed, the item in Sharepoint is still editable. How do we prevent this? I.e. The item once approved cannot be edited.

  31. Aysan Haghani 11 months ago

    Hi Jon, Thanks for informative tutorials, I have a question in regards to having a multiple approver process, Is there a way to check if the "waiting for approval" trigger is on pending and who is the person( approver)which hasn`t approved or reject( pending on) ?

  34. 90hayyan 6 months ago

    Hey Jon! Great content on Power Automate! I have been trying to explore the following and was wondering if you can point me in the right direction:-

    a. Record maintenance (as a printable document) of an approval form after it has been successfully approved (even multi-layer approval). I mean, what if I need to include that digital approval as an evidentiary document in a case.

    b. I have come across Adobe Sign as the most preferred way for digital signatures when we are using Teams or Power Automate. Any other/easier suggestions?
