Approval Expiration

We need the option for an Approval Email to expire after a specified number of days and allow the Flow to continue execution, or at least send repeated reminders like it does in SPD 2013 Workflow.

Re: Approval Expiration

In SPD 2013 Workflow, you can accomplish the expiration after a specified duration by using a parallel block.

Re: Approval Expiration

Hi RKushner,

 

Please consider to use Do-until loop in your flow. A do-until loop allows you to repeat a step until a certain condition is met.

 

Please check this blog for a reference:

Re: Approval Expiration

There is no need here to repeat any action/s. The flow is paused waiting for the approver to respond to an approval email and it waits forever until the approver responds. A parallel block would allow a timer to run and then terminate the flow. Otherwise, an expire (after specified number of days) is need in the send approval email.

Re: Approval Expiration

Hi RKushner,

 

Thanks for clarify and correcting me.

 

But I haven’t seen a direct action to achieve this. May I suggest you create a feature request at Flow Ideas Forum, I will also report this on my side.
