Emails with Multiple Attachments with Approvals and recurrence

Hi,

I currently have a flow process where when an item is created on sharepoint with multiple attachments, it collates the attachments and sends out an email to the manager with all the attachments. Then it sends out another email to the manager for approval.daw 1.PNG

The problem is, I want to create a reminder for managers who have not submitted their approval response.

I thought it would be as easy as using recurrence as the trigger.daw 3.PNG

 

However, when I do so, it only sends out one sharepoint item at a time. It waits until the previous item receives an approval response before sending out the next item. Which isn't good as I've got about 1000 items on the sharepoint list and they're all indepdent items.

 

Please help!

 

Thank you!

Take a look at the following article that explains how to add reminders into the Flow that creates the original Approval as a parallel loop.

Thank you for that.

 

Unfortunately, that wouldn't work as it does not re-send out individual approval emails again. It only sends out email reminders.

I want to be able to send out the individual approvals with options again to the necessary approvers again as part of the reminder.

Hi @kassie12345 ,

 

It is a default behavior that the approval request won’t move onto the next item until the previous request is Approved/Rejected.

 

You may need to go to “Apply to each” settings and turn on Concurrency Control, setting the Degree of Parallelism to 50.

 

The following blog on Serverless Parallelism in Microsoft Flow and SharePoint could be a reference for you:

Best regards,
