Delegation : Nintex vs MS Flow

Before starting  an approval process I am trying to query my Delegation list to confirm that the approver is currently on a leave or not. If he/she is on a leave then the approval process will start with the Delegated user based on the delegation list. I have already achieved this with Nintex workflow with the help of this blog >

But I don't know how to do it with MS flow . I believe it can be done with MS Flow also but I need help. Can you help me?

Re: Delegation : Nintex vs MS Flow

HI @PhantomSoul ,

 

To achieve your scenario, there is only one difference between the two workflows.

 

If you are using Microsoft Flow, I am afraid that it is not possible to check if the approver is currently on a leave or not. Please try with another workaround.

 

You could set the Timeout duration of the first approval action to, let’s say 1 day, if the approver doesn’t give a response within 1 day, this action will be timed out, then it will move on to the next approver (delegate) in case you’ve configured Run after as “has timed out” for the second approval action.
