Do Until the previous step is successful...

I have an approval set up and the next step after the approval is a condition.

 

I want to run a parallel branch off the condition with a "Do Until" type scenario which will keep sending reminder Emails  to the approvers (multiple approvers) until the previous step, the approval, is "successful".

 

So what I need is an "action" which checks for the previous action to be successful and keep doing what it's doing until it sees that. When the action sees that the previous action is "successful" it stops.

 

Any ideas?

Set a boolean varibale to false before the approval. Then after the approval set the variable to true.

 

In your Do until parallel branch you can then check for the value of the variable.

Pure brilliance!!!

I figured it out - I set the pre-approval variable to be "false" and then set the variable to be "true" after the approval happened. My mistake was that I had the "Do Until" checking for it to be "true" when it has to check for "false".  This is because I only want the action to happen while the variable is still false. 

 

AWESOME!
