Approval to diferent managers of different departments

Hi,

 

I have a question about a flow that will need approval.

So here is the situation explained:

 

People can fill in my form in a sharepoint site, but those people dont work at the same department.

When they fill in a form, it needs to be approved by the manager of that department, so i need to make a flow that will send a e-mail to different managers of different departments, is this possible and if so how?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Zenna

Well first of all I created a flow with a condition, if the condition contained a certain name it will send a mail to that department.

 

For an example:

Hello @Anonymous 

I am looking for a solution and i saw this am faced with same challenge you are (were) dealing with, but your solution is not accurate enough for me when I have more than 5 departments. 

I am able to assign my list to the line Managers using the get manager since the hierarchy is available in SharePoint. 

The second level of Approval is for the head of that  or each department to be the final approval especially when the requester have more than one approvers in a department. 

 

Thank you

@dmensah I recommend you investigate the Switch control which will start and wait for an approval and further actions  based on the department of the user (or entered into the form depending on how you do it).
