Hello Flow Community,

 

I have make many Flow in my company but since two weeks I have a problem with one of them which I don't understand. This Flow is an approval Request for purchase request. I have created a Sharepoint List with many columns. The column who Flow don't want to recognize is a Person column (as you can see in the picture).Capture d’écran 2019-05-02 à 01.04.53.png

My flow don't work. The error message is the next : « InvalidApprovalCreateRequestAssignedToMissing » but this approver is informed one the SharePoint List

Capture d’écran 2019-05-02 à 00.56.05.pngI have a similar Flow and SharePoint List for an Contract Approvals Request and he works very well. Can you help me please ?

Hi @Lahcen-MT ,

 

This happens if the field value specified in the currently created item is empty.

You can use Condition to determine if Approver email is empty. If it is empty, Approval action is not executed.

Hi @Lahcen-MT ,

 

Could you share your Flow configuration?

If the filled field type is Person, you could configure Person Email directly in Assigned To field.

For example, I have a field named Approver, the type is Person, and it is a single selection.

We only need to populate the Approver Email in Approval action.

I have a similar problem.  But it only started occurring because this flow has three approvers.  I've tried various ways to get the flow to work.  However, once the second approver rejects the request, the flow fails with that error and the emails with notification that the request was rejected never kicks off either.
