Approval action counter?

Currently in the Start and wait for an approval action, when added to a Do until action, can be configured to send multiple requests at specified intervals.  My Do until has a count of 90 to run over 15 days with the approval action each having a 2 day timeout.  Essentially every 2 days conditions will be evaluated and if no response has been registered another request email will be sent out which will be repeated for no more than a 15 day period.  When I look at a specific run I can see where in some cases, will have 2 or 3 "cycles" before a response has been achieved.  I'd like to incorporate the "cycle" number in the requests so the user can see that this is the 3rd or 4th or x number of times they've been asked to review the item.

In the screen shot above it took 4 "cycles" before the approver responded.  What I'm looking to do is tell them this the 4th request or whatever the current number would be.  The original request would be 1, the 1st reminder would be 2, the 2nd reminder would be 3, etc.

Is it possible to get this information so it can be incorporated?

Hi @emberkrumwied 

 

Declare a numeric variable outside the loop.

Then inside the loop before the Start and Wait approval increment it.
