Is there any way to get which approvers approved the document before the approval times out?

I am building a flow in which I need set of users to approve the document, these users will be coming from SharePoint list. The approval setup looks something like below, now, the approval should timeout after 10 days and then the process should restart with remaining users, but when the approval timesout it only provides error message and does not provide any other data about the approvers that already approved the document. I have also submitted idea here, https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Being-able-to-get-approval-response-even-if-it-times-...

I also tried to do this in apply for each loop (running it concurrently) but in that it waits for all the responses before proceeding even if one of the response is reject. To work around this i used do until loop to see if one of response was reject and then terminating the whole process, but handling success and timeout part became tricky. Basically i was using a shared variable before doing timeout/success actions, but as the responses can be concurrent there arised problem of race condition, for which i have submitted an idea here, https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/Locking-mechanism/idi-p/277438

Any insights or votes would be helpful.

Hi @dmoorjmalani ,

 

Thanks for sharing the ideas.

 

Once an approval action timed out, it returned the timed out error message but doesn’t provide any other data including approvers that already submitted a response.

 

I will suggest other customers who have the same request to vote your idea as well.

 

Best regards,

Mabel
