Approval Status Email

Hi Everyone

 

We have been using Flow to handle the approval process for agency's leave requests.  We have been having some hiccups with some errors that seems to be generated by the Approval process in flow. 

 

The problem: Users submit a request, it goes through the flow checking for various conditions, it will then email the requestor saying they have submitted a request.  Problem is when these hiccups occur the user has no clue if their supervisor actually got the Approval email.  Is there something than can check the status of the Start and wait for Approval piece, then send an email to the user if it actually send the email to the supervisor or if it fails it should send an email to me so I can resubmit the WF for them.

 

Thanks!

-Michelle

Hi @MRC1234 ,

 

Currently, we have no way to get the value of the status displayed in the image, but if you want to be notified when the Flow is successfully executed, you can add a Send notification action in the last step of the entire Flow.

 

If Flow is successful, you will receive a notification and indicate that the current status column value will be Succeeded.
