Approval flow where at least 2 of 3 approvers must approve and flow should move ahead even if 3rd person didn't act on it.

I have one scenario of getting approval from at least 2 person out of 3.

I have implemented all things to consideration of approval from parallel branch. but i got stuck if 2 person approve and 3rd one didn't take any action. I saved value to variable as well. but things is all three person needs to take action (approve/Reject). because if one of the person doesn't act on approval then flow is not going ahead. In my case if got two approval then Flow should move, should not wait for third person action.

As you can see run after condition it will wait for all three activity to complete.image.pngimage.png

Re: Approval flow where at least 2 of 3 approvers must approve and flow should move ahead even if 3rd person didn't act on it.

what if you put a do until loop in each approval branch.

 

i.e. do until - number of approves = 2.

you can then put your logic underneath this loop and then terminate the flow as long as you did not have to process things unique to a branch. if you put a different delay in each one you could be sure only one ran at once.

 

 

like this (replace approvals with your variable) / adjust as neededAnnotation 2019-11-06 231735.png
