Approval flow outcome and condition "value" - result always rejected

I am setting up an approval flow for a leave register in a sharepoint list. The flow needs to register the "Requestor" and the approval request going to the respective line manager (I changed the approval window from "Start an approval" to "Create an approval". In my initial attempts I was successful in recording the approval with the "Start an approval" option, but the "Requestor" always appeared as one person. As I only need one response from the line manager, I have chosen "First to Respond"

 

After changing the approval type, I have been successful with the approval notices originating from the correct team member but all the responses appear as "Rejected" even when "Approved" when saved into the sharepoint list.

 

When I try and work on the Condition I don't get any values dyanamic values that appear like a output (eg response, outcome)

 

Any help would be appreciated.

@RamonaFrede  you need to use "Wait for an approval" action along with Create Approval action. You will get outcome in dynamic content of "Wait for an approval" action
