Approval Workflow keeps starting over after finished

I have an approval flow, but when the flow ends, the process starts right over again. Is there a way to stop the workflow? I'm using the "When a response is submitted (Forms)" Flow.

@BarbaraBender 

You have your Approval action inside of a loop - therefore it is executing as many times as your loop loops....

It looks like you really want to list multiple individuals as the approver. If that is the case:

  1. Create a string variable
  2. Loops through the users who will be approvers
  3. Use an append to string variable action and add each approver to the variable followed by a semicolon
  4. Use the variable for the Assigned to input for your approval action.

The end result should be that your approval action is not inside of a loop.

Thanks @ScottShearer can you show me how to do it?

 

The first email I use the "Search for users (V2)" from a forms response, the other 2 are always the same.

@BarbaraBender 

What are you using as input for the Search for users action?  If they are entering a a Forms text box, can you post a screen shot of how that field is configured in Forms?  Are you trying to get the name of the user who submitted the Form?

The user who submitted the form chooses a name from a list. I use the name he chooses to get the institucional email. (The Form is in Portuguese)Captura de Tela 2022-04-28 às 11.26.47.pngCaptura de Tela 2022-04-28 às 11.27.21.pngCaptura de Tela 2022-04-28 às 11.27.57.png
