Cost approval process

Good afternoon all,

I am in the process of adding a Purchase Order flow to our current Procurement Tracker flow. I am still relatively new to Power Automate. 

The aim of this Flow is to determine whether a PO is required based on the value of the item being requested by our Tech team.

I am working with these values:

  • £50 or under - auto approval. 
  • £50-£1000 - line manager approval
  • £1000+ Exec Team approval
  • Over £5k not in budget, Board approval

Based on the cost of the item a member of the team would like to purchase (submitted in their form response and pulled into a SharePoint list) I would like the Flow to trigger, if approval is required and send an approval request to the line managers or exec team. 

 

It only requires an Approve/Reject from 'First to Respond'.

 

I have used a condition control to pick up the value of the item and if an approval is required but I am getting the following message: (Please note, I have only made one condition so far for the £50+ approval request using myself as a test)

For reference, the full flow is listed below:

Not sure where I am going wrong with this Flow but all help is greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @ThomasEarlS1 ,

 

Please try to add a Compose action above Condition to output the value of Dynamic content you fill in the Condition.

 

After running Flow, check the specific value of this field and show it to us so that we can help you troubleshoot.
