Flow connected to Form for Approval

Hi,

 

I am trying to build a flow using Power Automate connected to Forms and to have an approval step.

 

My Form is set up in the following way:

 

Question 1:
Text Field - Managers Email

 

Question 2:

Option Field - Option 1/2/3

 

Question 3:

Upload Field - Document Review Upload

 

Question 4:

Rating Field - Out of 5

 

I am hoping to creating a flow that when the responder uploads a document in question 3, it needs to go to the email given in question 1 for approval first before it can go to the creator of the Form.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

i have just added that compose to see what comes in the outcome and it is the approved or reject message

Also here i have not added responders email as it is the same email which i have hard coded in the send email connector step.

Let me know in case of any Issues.

I have managed to create this but it just goes to a standard approve/reject - not specific to Question 3 and cannot review the document.

Hi @ViditGholam - the document upload is a required field so approval is always sent as a document is always uploaded

Hi @DrishM13  here is how you can do it create an automated flow. 

ViditGholam_0-1618232881533.png

Use these triggers as shown below don't use existing templates 

ViditGholam_1-1618232947577.png

Then follow this youtube link which will show you how you can attach the contents of your uploaded file in the attachment of your approval (he has attached the file to a sharepoint list but you can attach in your attachment)

Note - It is annoying to edit the one drive name it comes back again and again you will have to wipe it multiple times.

if you want to get rid of the apply to each loop watch this YouTube video - https://youtu.be/Xxad-kSLQ9Y

HI @ViditGholam - thank you so much - it works well and I like that you get an attachment of the file you have uploaded.

 

My only question is, can there be a step added at the end when an email notification is sent to the responders email address about the outcome?

 

I see the notification comes up in my Teams but not outlook. 

 

I have tried to add "send an email" and I get the "To and Subject"  but when I try to add in the body, there is nothing stating "outcome"

I added the "email address" of the requestor in the "start and wait for approval" step as it was only showing my email even when another person was asking for approval.

Hi @ViditGholam - I already added that step 🙂

 

What I am looking for it after the document is approved or rejected, the responder gets an email at the end stating the outcome...something like this? But I can't seem to get a field that shows "outcome"

Hi @ViditGholam , I have a quick question about this flow.

 

Whenever someone else requests a document to be approved/rejected, the document does indeed go to the specified email "managers email in the form", however the response to the responder comes from my email and not the managers email address.

 

Is this because I am the owner of the form?

 

Is there any way around this? 

I modified the flow to the picture below and wondering if this will solve it? Not sure if it should be 1 or 2?

The best way to make sure you know what's going on in the News & Announcements, to blogs you follow, or forums and galleries you're interested in is to subscribe! These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
