Flow - Approval workflow - Approval by only one member out of a group is needed

Dear all,

 

I have a list where members could ceate new members who need an account.

 

Therefore, when a new item is created I want to start an approval process "Start an approval" and this should be sent to members of an office 365 group.

 

The point is, that only one answer is needed for the approval or rejection. Further answers should not be counted.

 

Does someone have an idea how to do?

 

When I create an approval process with a group, the process is only finishing if every answer member answered.Approval.PNG

 

 

 

 

Thank you.

Unfortunately this does not solve the issue.

 

When I'm doing a test with your solution I got following error at the "Append to string variable":

I solved this issue in another way:

Send an eMail with options: https://syscloudpro.com/2018/02/08/microsoft-flow-approval-email-send-with-options/

@Anonymous :

 

Your issue is that you are creating a separate approval for each member of the group inside of your apply to each loop rather than assigning one approval to all group members. 

 

What you need to do is to loop trough the group members and add each group members email address to a string variable separated by a semicolon.  Reference the variable in the Approval "assigned to" field.
