Automating leave request

Hi all, 

This is my first project in automating the process  and i'm pretty exited with the power of these tools. As usual for a beginner, I'm experiencing some difficulties. 

I have created two list 

1. List1 - leave request with  10 Columns ( Name, Leave type,Date, first working date of leave , last working day of leave ,  supervisor ,Total leave hours ,comment - these values update automatically once submit the request form ,Manager Email - no values  )
2. Manages List - 3 columns ( Employee name , EmpEmail , Manager email ) 
( employee assigned to the corresponding manager for approval )

Then I have created the below flow 


Step I : triggered  when modification is done in List1 ( when some one made a request)
Step 2: get items from Manager List (List 2) and filter it based on employee email ( unique ID) 

Step 3 : Select the value from the 2 step and send the approval request for the corresponding manager 

When I do the test run It was successful, But for some reason manager don't receive any emails. 
Could some one please help me to solve this ? 

Thank you.

Re: Automating leave request



You can check with following ways:

1. Before Approval action, place a compose action and insert Manager email field. This will help you to see what email it is using for approval.

2. Try testing by including your and your manage email in the Approver field. If you get email, he should also receive email. You can ask him to check in spam folder also.
