Help with Approval Flow when a new item is created in sharepoint list

Hi everyone! 

 

I need help with an approval flow. 

 

Is there anyway to disable the picture of whoever creates the flow? As the person who created the flow isn't the one creating the items in the Sharepoint list.

 

Secondly, I have a flow with 3 requirements. 

 

*When an item is created

*Start and Wait for Approval

*Update the sharepoint list, with the date, response and comment. 

*If a calculated column in the sharepoint list says contains "2" then another approval flow is needed. 

 

Is the best way to do this to nest it all under one "Yes" condition or keep them separate? 

 

Thanks

you can set the requetor in the advanced options of the approval action - set it to the person who created the item.

 

you can change your trigger to when item created or modified - use a flow condition such as:

 

@equals(triggerBody()?['StartFlow'],'Yes')

 

Create StartFlow as a SLT default value Yes.

 

Create a second field which will hold what approval you need to do  (if requiring different types) then use a switch on this field.

 

When you do your update, do a Yes if your value in your calc column is 2, or a No if your value is No.
