Approval for multiple/parallel approvers wth resume function?

Hi all,

 

i need an approval flow for multiple/parallel approvers.

 

For Example a user submits a document/order via document library, a flow should start and sent the approval to a set of departments (quality, development, sales, distribution...). Each department has a designated approver and a delegate.

Every department needs to approve for the order to be approved but If one rejects the approval the creator should be able to fix/edit his proposal and resume the approval so the ones who did approve it don't geht bothered again.

 

i hope it's understandable. Thanks

Hi @crevan ,

 

The function to create a flow with Approval for approvers with resume is not supported in Microsoft flow currently, if you would like the function to be supported in Microsoft flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

@v-yamao-msft 

Okay maybe you can help me with another approach.

 

I start the approval and sent it to the different departments.

If one department rejects the approval a Choice Field in SPO changes to "open question - Yes".

I want to approval to pause and wait for the Field to change to "open question - No".

 

i tried it with do until but the approval gets instantly triggered again and doesn't wait for the field change:

Here is my test flow (sorry for the german)

Hi @crevan ,

 

When using do until loop, the data used in the condition is not pulled in from the previous step but instead it is part of the do until block itself.

 

From the screenshot, it seems that you are using value from the trigger in the condition of the loop.

 

Please check the following doc and modify it on your side:
