Automatic reminder on approval

Hello,

 

Last month, I build for my company a simple approval workflow on file update in multiple SP library. For this purpose, I use the build-in approval tasks of power automate. 

No problem to use it, and we manage to push my workflow in production before christmas. 

 

But since my return of vacation, we get each day on the same time an automatic reminder for my pending approbation. That means that like a received something like 100 approbations tasks during my vacation, each day I will get the exacte same 100 approbations tasks, resulting on thousand of mail during my vacation. We didn't notice that behavior in test and dev environment before during developpement but now it has the same behavior. And I looked at the flow history, no new running flow.  

 

I've got the same behavior also on a old flow using approval on an other tenant. I didn't get this before.

 

Is it a new feature ? Did I miss a settings to avoid that ? Is it related with new approval app in Teams ? 

 

Also I notice that when people use the panel property to change the file properties (like each properties is saved after his update), it will trigger my flow each time (Trigger: When a file is created or update) resulting on having multiple running flow (with multiple approbation tasks so) in 1 minutes for the same file, is it a way to avoid it ? (like delay the trigger ?)

 

Thanks for your help ! 

Laurent
