Approval triggering twice when using 'When created or modified' - is this the only way to check the status?

Hi Folks -


I am running into a common issue where my Approval is triggering twice as I am using the 'Created or Modified' trigger.  I want to add logic to the beginning of the flow to check the current status of the Approval to prevent the double approval.  It doesn't seem like the Approval steps are exposed.  I found this thread :


Is this the only way to check the approval status? Thanks!

Hi @simms7400 ,


You could add trigger condition.




Best Regards,


@v-xiaochen-msft  How would I dd something there? I'd ultimately like to check of there is a pending approval already. if so, ignore.  How would I do this?
