Approvals reminder Do Until after approval steps?

Hello,

 

I am trying to get an approval reminder working and have been attempting to hack something together out of the box!

 

My flow is as below and it is sending through the Approval email however when it gets down to my "Do Until" action, it is not sending the reminder email.

 

I am using the variable "varApprovalExecDirector1Completed" to be set as true/false at various points in the workflow. When it is not $true then the "Do Until" action should run through every week (I used a minute for testing). When it is $true then it should update the SharePoint list data as Approved - also based on whether Approval = true.

Hello @sudosaurus

Where do you set variable varApprovalEx... to true?

Could you please show "Do until 2" block expanded? 

Do you change variable varApprovalEx... in this block?

@VictorIvanidze it is expanded in the screenshot.

I've just wanted to know if there any other actions inside the block and if you change the variable varApprovalEx... in this block.

Please check the limits in your do until.

The defaults are 60 loops OR 1 hour.

@VictorIvanidze 
This is the expanded Do Until block:

@okeks I'm not hitting any limits as I'm only testing with one row of data.

Please try to replase the "false" on the right side of the condition with false, but written as an expression.

It should then look like the true in the do until condition.

@okeks I tried that but no difference I'm afraid.

 

I've managed to get similar thing working on another workflow:

However with this method I'm only able to send a basic reminder email and not able to include any dynamic content from the approval actions.

Obviously, I'm trying to get the Approval dynamic content working in the method I've tried performing in my original post.
