Cannot get single response from Flow Approval

I am building a flow with an Approval so have created a Step: Start and wait for an approval (First to respond):

Flow - Start and wait for an approval 1.PNG

 

I want to update the list item on Approve or reject with the Approval Response, so I created a Condition to put in the response:

Unfortunately, there is no Response, only Responses available in the Dynamic Content list:

 

Flow - Start and wait for an approval 3.PNG

 

And when I choose one, Flow creates an Apply to each.

 

In my other flows I don't have this problem...

 

How can I get the response = Approve or Reject value?

Hi @livingstonep 

 

In the Condition pick "Outcome" and you'll get "Approve" or "Reject". You can use either on the comparison.

 

Something like this:

@manuelstgomes  Thanks for this.

 

It's pretty strange that an older flow still has Response:

Flow - Start and wait for an approval 4.PNG

 

so what's changed since I built the older approval flow a few months ago?

 

Although, I do see the Deprecated message in the description of the older approval:

Flow - Start and wait for an approval 5.PNG

 

Hi @livingstonep 

 

"response" contains the details for each individual response. The Outcome combines all of them into one aggregated reply. If you send to multiple people and get comments, you'll have to check the "Responses" for each individual answer but, in this case, since you're asking for the first reply, the Outcome will serve you well 🙂

 

Hope this helps
