Document workflow with 2 level approvals

Hello All, I have created a workflow for document approval with two level of approvals. Flow Defined :  Initiate the flow from one folder and after both the approvals, workflow moves the file to another set folder with update in meta data.


Now, for the above flow I need to inert another folder, i.e. total 3 folders.  Flow : Initiate the task from the 1st folder and after the first level of approval file should move to second folder and from there the initiation should happen for second level of approval and upon approval it should move to 3rd or last folder.


Question:  I am able to achieve till movement of folder from 1st folder to 2nd folder and also a initiation for second level of approval, but in the mail sent to approver, it still shows the 1st folder link. Could you please help me in resolving the issue.


Thanks in advance.

Can you upload your flow picture?


Are these different folders within the same library?

Yes, the folders are in same Documents library and below is the logic:

1. For a selected file - to initiate workflow and also to choose approvers

2. Get file properties

3. Approvals Initiation  - Stage 1

4. Condition

4.1 Reject - Send mail to author on rejection and update meta data

4.2 Approve - Send mail to second approver, move file to next folder and update meta data

4.2.1 Approvals Initiation - Stage 2

4.2.3 Condition Reject - Send mail to author on rejection and update meta data Approve - Send mail to author on approval, move file to next folder and update meta data


My flow is failing from 4.2, where the mail sent to second approver has link to previous folder.
