Flow and multiple approvers

I want to start an approval process with multiple approvers with the trigger beign when I receive an email & have several quesions;

 

  1. Can I grab a link from the email the body of the email and use this as the link to the item ?
  2. We are not allowed to use sharepoint and so I need an alternative to capture response?

Re: Flow and multiple approvers

Hi @EdithVilla,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

 

If you want to send an approval email to multiple approvers, you could consider take a try to fill multiple email addresses of the approvers within the Assigned to field of the "Start an approval" action. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:4.JPG

 

 

For your first question, do you want to extract email address from the Body of your received email? If you want to extract email address from the Body of your received email, please check and see if the following article would help in your scenario:

More details about extract email address from email body using substring() function, please check the following thread:

For your second question, do you want to capture response of the received email? How do you want to capture the response? You could consider take a try to store the response into a Excel file which is stored in your OneDrive for Business folder. More details about storing data into a Excel file stored in OneDrive for Business folder, please check the following thread:
