Approval process : sending the output to everyone but the approver

Hi everyone,

 

I am building an approval process which includes 3 people. It requires only one answer (approve or reject) to move forward (instead of the approval of everyone). 

I would like to send an email to the 2 remaining persons to tell them that the request has been approved by the first one.

Do you have suggestions on how to complete that ?

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Gregory

Hi @GREGHR,

 

Sorry for my wrong answer, now the correct solution.

 

 1 - Use a compose to put the e-mail of all approvers

 2 - Use this compose output in Approvers

 3 - After approval use an replace funcion to remove of first compose the email of approver

      Use this function. OBS: DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE(IF NECESSARY) THE RED TEXT TO YOUR ACTIONS NAMES

replace(outputs('Compose_2'),body('Start_an_approval')?['responder']?['email'],'')

 4 - Send email.

Hi Gustavo, 

 

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I feel comfortable with the part your are addressing.

My problem is that I send the approval to Tom and Jerry. So far, if Jerry approves, Tom is unaware of this.

 

What I want to do: 

If Jerry approves (or rejects) the request, Tom receives an email to inform him

And if Tom approves, Jerry receives an email to inform him

 

I have 4 people receiving the approval. When one of them answers the approval, I want the three others to be informed
