Approval Flow

Hello Guys,

 

Please could someone help me with the approval flow? Scenario is: 

I need to take more items from SharePoint at one time. For each item I need to send an approval flow and each approval should consist of attachments that belong to the item on SharePoint.

For one item flow works perfectly, but if you need to send multiple at once the problem comes at the same time I need the flow to work with multiple attachments in one item.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi @Scenox 

 

Thank you for posting.

 

According to your description, you would like to configure approval contains several files attached. If any misunderstanding, please kindly let me know.

 

If that’s the case, we can use array variable to store all attachments. Here is the flow for your reference:

Flow in detail:

{
   "name": "display name",
   "content": "attachment content"
}

Once tested, I’m able to receive approval email with attachments as below:

Hello Anna,

 

Thank you for your reply. Yes, this one I tried before. But I need that flow for existing items so the trigger can not be when it is created, but it should be scheduled flow with "get items".

 

Please let me know if you understand me 🙂 

 

Thank you a lot.

 

Best regards,

 

Robert.
