Add information to approval response and update sharepoint item

Hello, 

 

I am working on a approval flow, in wich I get the email request once a new item is created on the sharepoint. I am also able to send the responde to the creator of the request. 

 

Now I want to add some information to that request answer and also update some colums in the sharepoint list with the information that is added to the request answer.

 

Any help would be great, thank you!

Re: Add information to approval response and update sharepoint item

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

To update some columns in the SharePoint list with the information that is added to the request answer, do you want to update the list columns with Responses comments, Response, etc.? Please share more details on it.

 

I have made a simple flow likes below for your reference.

 

When an item is created in SharePoint list, start an approval action, then update the item with value from the approval action, such as Responses comments, and the Response.

What you are seeking is possible and quite easily achieved within an Approval Flow. You'd simply add steps to the Flow after each approval step to perform the SharePoint List item changes as required. Here is an example mockup:UpdateMultipleLists.PNGOfficial Approval Flow Documentation

Re: Add information to approval response and update sharepoint item

Say you have column A, B, C and D. Whehn the item is created, fill information in A and B, and when the approval is made, in the response message, the responder can add the values to C and D column

 

Is there a way to add custom information to the response beside the response comments?
