Flow workflow

Hello, I am trying to create a flow workflow to do the following:
 
1) Send an email when a new item is created
2) Send an email when the status of said item has been updated to "approved". Can I use the same flow workflow for both steps or do I need to create two separate flows for this?
 
thanks, Sherazad.

Hi @sher5817 

 

You can do it in one Flow. Here you go:

Can you please check if and let me know if you have any questions?

 

Cheers

Is the approval being created by flow or manually? You can use a flow with a trigger of "new item created" to create and wait for the approval and then send an e-mail stating when the approval is approved all in one - but if the approval is being created manually somehow - that would be hard I would think

It would look something like this (automated flow)

There is now a "When an item is created" trigger - unless you need something else - I would use that in this case and get rid of your need for the conditional

How would you wait for the approval in this case?

 

thanks,

Sher.
