Approval Email - First to Respond error

Hi,

 

I have a flow which has a Start and Wait for an Approval step with Approve/Reject - First to Respond.

 

However, instead of both approvers receiving their email at the same time (where first one in just needs to approve) the system is sending one approval email to the first person and then once they've approved the second person receives an approval email.

 

Any ideas how to stop this? I assume it's because it's in an Apply to Each box but I can't get rid of it when I want it to pick up the Approval Email from the list?

 

The column for approver names is just a simple Person column which allows multiple selections but I want the approval email to go to both of them at same time and only one needs to approve for the flow to move forward (and presumably this would show on the other person's approval email that it's already been dealt with?)

Hi @RRMX1 ,

 

Looks like an issue with your loop.  Use it to append to an array and pass it to your approval step outside of the loop.

 

Please refer to this post.
