Approve Flow - Some specfic requestors with 2 step approve, some with 1 step approve

I'd like to build a Flow like

if the requestor's line manager not department manger(line manager's boss), these requests need 2 step approve, first approved by line manager, next approve by department manager.

If the requestor's line manager is department manger, these requests need 1 step approve, approve by department manager.

 

Can you guide how to build the flow?

 

Thanks!

Hi @johncao1986,

Could you please tell me how you configure the line manager within your Office365?

Do you want to start multi levels approval?

 

Here is the thing, get details about the requestor from the data source and get the manager using the Get user profile action, add a condition to compare if the line manager equals to the department manager, if so, start an approval assigning to the department manager, if not, start approval for the line manager and then add a new condition to operate another approval for the department manager if the outcome is approved.

Best Regards,
Qi
