Getting approval decisions and comments in parallel approval

I'm trying to implement a parallel approval in Power Automate, where I'm sending a list of people an approval all at once. I'd like however to get a status as the initiator of the workflow as to what happens with it? Let's say I have 10 approvers, 9 of them already approved and it's still pending for 1, I need to know what's going on. Currently, I'm not receiving any emails as to who approved, who rejected, or comments.

 

My approval should be satisfied when all approvers approved the document. How do we do that?

Hi @BrittanyR,

 

It's unfortunate that Microsoft flow not support capture the pending approval details.

 

As a workaround, you could store the 10 approver emails into an array variable, e

Then if the approval response is approve, add a row into a excel table, store these information into it to make you could check response details in the Excel table:

To make the 10 approval requests could send out at the same time, we should set the Apply to each action to turn on the Concurrency control:
