Capturing all comments in multi level approval flow using Excel



I have a flow with two levels of approval. On the first level of approval, it's set to everyone must approve. Once everyone approves, it sends the request to the second level approver. Once the second level approver approves or rejects, it updates comment and approval status columns. There are comment and approval status columns for both levels of approval.


I want to capture the comments of all approvers on the first level in the Excel comment column and I want to include these comments in the message that goes to the second level approver. With the everyone must approve option, only the most recent response is captured. From what I've seen online, most do this flow with a sharepoint list, however, I'm recording my responses in an Excel file and I was unsure of what connector would be best. flowhelp1.pngflowhelp2.PNG

HI @DD7 


Do you need to store the comments permanently or just send them to the next level of approval? If you don't need to keep them, you can create an array variable and append each comment. Then, in the next step, you can use the "join" function to generate a string from those comments and send it in the approval process.
