Approval flow

My scenario:

I have four Approvers- Appover1 , Approver2 , Approver 3 and Approver 4

Approver 1 from my application interface clicks approve --> Http trigger in flow initiates it --> Start Approval and wait action for Approval 2 --> Approval 2 approves through email --> Approval 3 approves from application inteface

 

Can flow suffice the scenario where user can approval the flow at two junctions either from application interface or from email??

Hi @Reetika 

 

You can trigger a flow from your application interface by using the When an Http request is received trigger in the flow but I believe you cannot actually respond to an approval from a custom application interface. You can use the base functionality that users can respond to the approval from their emails or the flow approvals dashboard and build the multi-level approval scenario in it. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @Reetika 

 

Unfortunately that is not supported directly right now with approval actions.

Is this scenario's implementation future feature expected from Flow..?
Or Can we raise my request as idea for Flow team..

Hi @Reetika 

 

Approval actions require authentication and the response is expected from the person who has been assigned as the approver. That is supported through Outlook email, approval center and teams only at the moment. However, if you think it should be added as a feature, you can create an idea post here or upvote any already existing similar ones. https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Ideas/idb-p/MPAIdeas
