Approval Action


 Is there any way to interrogate an approval action to know which of the approvers has approved already, and whom it is waiting on? I've thought about a parallel loop to check the status of the Approval action, but not sure if there is data within it to see who has approved or not.

Re: Approval Action

You could use CDS to query the Approvals entity.  But that would be a lot of work.  I think it would be easier to just create a variable arrary and add each approver to it when their response comes back.  Then you could check the array at any time to see who has approved and who has not.

Re: Approval Action

Brilliant, thanks Pstork1!!


 I've designed the Flow I'm working on to parse all of the email addresses together so I'd have to revert it back to do the approval in a 'For Each' loop to parse the array out and update the item details I think? I wanted to avoid as it then complicates collecting the overall 'outcome' for the multiple approvals I think?


I'm way down the line in developing the flow and want to get it delivered and move onto other work. This was a very minor question that came out in a review - a fair and interesting questio. Realistically, all the approvers work in the same team and can just nudge each other or restart the approval (removing the offending approver if they're on holiday etc).
