Flow approvals with a Approved, Partial & Reject

I need to create an approval that has 3 options, "Fully" Approved, Partial (see comments), Rejected.  Is there any way I can do this?

 

I have created a flow that captures Appovals and Rejections but would like to cpature in a single column the Partial Approvals without reading the comments

Hi @felix_flow,

 

How do you create your approval email? With "Start an approval" action?

Do you want to create an approval email which has 3 options?

 

I think the "Send email with options" action of Office 365 Outlook connector could achieve your needs. I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:9.JPG

User Options field set to following formula:

"Fully" Approved, Partial (see comments), Rejected

The flow works successfully as below:10.JPG

In addition, sending approval email which contains 3 options using "Start an approval" action is not supported in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

More details about the "Send an email with options" action, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Kris

Where do you allow the recipient to enter comments?  You show a "Partial (see comments)" option, but where does the recipient enter the comments when they respond to the email?
