Flow to move file once Approval = Denied

Hello all!  I Have a flow that checks for "Denied" in the Content Approval Column. It's triggered when a SharePoint file is created or edited. Only problem is the flow is only triggering when the document is put into the directory and at that point the 'Content Approval Status' is always reading as 'In progress'.  The flow runs but never moves the file upon 'Denied' because it has already run upon file being placed into the directory.  For some reason it is not running a second time when the metadata is updated and thus would check the 'Content Approval Status' column and see the document was rejected and thus move the file into the rejected folder. I know this for sure as I have resubmitted the flow after the workflow has been completed and the 'Content Approval Status' column has been updated to 'Denied'. Upon resubmission the flow triggers and the action to move the file to 'Rejected Folder' is executed. 

 

Any ideas how to either keep the flow in 'process' until the 'Content Approval' has been completed? Otherwise I need the flow to trigger again upon metadata being updated.  Can anyone help?  Thanks all!

 

Tom

Hi @tomh,

 

You can use this trigger When a file is created or modified (properties only) instead of your previous one, it will perform once the file metadata is modified.Annotation 2019-11-06 132016.png
