Approval Pending Reminder Emails

Hello, I need some help on reminder notice for a workflow I have built.  The reminder set up in the below screenshot works fine. The two issues I need help with are as follows:

1) I have multiple approvers for a stage. When on person approves they still get reminder notifications. Is there a way to stop the reminder for this and only send to who has pending approval?

2) I can't find a way to include the approve/reject button in the reminder email. Is there a way to do this?

Re: Approval Pending Reminder Emails

hi @aarvind1 answering your questions

 

1) I have multiple approvers for a stage. When on person approves they still get reminder notifications. Is there a way to stop the reminder for this and only send to who has pending approval?

This can be done using sharepoint list, so you cna create a sharepoint list with the columns Name, Mail, State and in state you can save the approved value from your first responder and then in flow just get the 2 users that don't have this approved value to send remainders.

 

2) I can't find a way to include the approve/reject button in the reminder email. Is there a way to do this? 

Not the same buttons approvals but you can use the action, send email with options this can allow to your users to send an answers as buttons.

Re: Approval Pending Reminder Emails

Hello @ChristianAbata , thank you for the response.  I am currently using SharePoint List and noting the status there.  The challenge I am running into is there could be multiple people in the approver list and I can't figure out how to parse who responded and what the response was (approve/reject).  Is there a way to parse this info so that I can split it and save it in individual columns?
