2 approver flow



Im trying to build a flow so once a document is added to a sharepoint folder it would be issued to run on a 2 approver flow. The first approver would be a business stakeholder - this could be a different person each time. Once they have approved the document this would then be sent to finance to approve


I've tried doing this from stratch but I fall at the first hurdle because I dont know what the list name is because I want it to work for selected items.

HI @Anonymous

Nobody will be able to tell you the name of your sharepoint list 🙂 You have to create it.

Go to your sharepoint /Site contents/add an app/Custom list. Just use google, its free 🙂
