Emailing the file uploader after the document has been approved or rejected?

Hi,

 

I am having a problem getting Flow to send an email back the document uploaded once the file is either approved or rejected.

 

At the moment I have a flow that when a user uploads a document to sharepoint, an email is sent to the approver. The approver can either approve the file and the file is moved to an approved folder or the approver rejects the file and the file is moved to a rejected folder.

 

I would like an email to then go to the document uploader telling them that either the file has been approved or rejected.

 

I have found what looks like what I am after on a different flow but I can not figure out how to either copy it into my flow or get the dynamic content search box to list it.

 

Does anyone know how to copy from one flow to another or perhaps even how to make my flow send an email back to the document requester?

 

Thanks,

Hello @GavanMeyer

 

I attach these screenshots

I added the action Get-User between the Sharepoint file creation action and approval mail; after this I created the 2 send mail actions to send the result to the uploader; in the send approval mail, I hard coded the "to" field: I don't know if the approver is one, is different form file to file, or other.

 

Let me know if you need other explanation.

 

Hope this help.

Hello @GavanMeyer

 

maybe my reply is so beacuse I don't understand well, but after the condition that apply the "send approval mail" you can add an action "send email" to the yes path where you add in the fields the name of the file, the document uploader email; same thing on the "no" path.

 

Let me know if I understood your problem.
