Approvals Not Waiting Items in Sharepoint List

Hi

I have a flow that grabs items from a sharepoint list (looping while Its the same person) and then emails each persons overtime to their manager.

I would like to change the flow so that rather than just listing, it comes through as an approval.

 

However, the issue I have is that if I do Start and Wait, it works, but it waits for each one, meaning some staff don't get it for ages.

If I just do start an approval, because it doesn't wait, they all come through as rejected.

Any suggestions please

hi @karldenton  in my experience the only way that we have is the first that you mention, you need to wait all responses.

Thanks.

The alternative would be a button on the email that changes a sharepoint list field?

Is that possible?

Hello,
Could you try to use start an approval action.
Than outside of your apply to each loop add wait for approval action.
