Flow Run Failed - Approvals Related


Screen Shot Of PowerApp Fields:



Screenshot of Flow



Hello - I have a flow that works from a PowerApps call. But, now I'm trying to add an approval condition based upon a particular dropdown menu on PowerApp (which I have passing from a variable in flow). I tried doing a parallel action that says "If Shoregang is listed in Department field on PowerApp, then I want the approval process to lookup proper approvers on another SharePoint list. Then continue flow as normal.


Any ideas how to handle a simple condition request (I'm fairly new to PowerApps & Flow).

hi @tbomar  I think your value that comes from PApps it's null or empty as the error message mention. Please remember that you need to retreive emails in assingers field to create the approval
