How to re-run approval flow with Form until approved

Hi,

Disclaimer: I'm a speech therapist so sorry if this is really basic. I'm trying to automate a performance improvement process for graduate students. I've developed a flow that:

1. Triggers when the supervisor creates a new SharePoint list item.

2. Once that is triggered, an email is sent to the student with a link to fill out responses via Microsoft Form. 

3. Once Form is submitted an email is sent to the supervisor with responses of Form for approval

4. Condition placed for approval

5. If approved, approval email is sent to student and sharepoint list updated with data from Form

5b. If rejected, rejection email with comments is sent to student with instructions to resubmit Form via link.

 

My problem is that doesn't seem to be enough to re-trigger an email for approval to supervisor. I need to loop it back somehow if it's rejected so that the student has an opportunity to submit a revised Form which is sent to the supervisor for approval/rejection until approval is given. I know there is a "do until" condition, but I'm not certain how/where to place it and if it'll solve my issue.

 

Thank you.

Hi @slp,

 

Maybe you could create two flow.

 

And the second flow should with trigger when a new response is submitted, I have made a test on my side , you could create the flow as below:
