Loop with Approval Email

I am building a flow that periodically checks a location for new items and when new items are found, it loops through each items and seeks approval for each one separately, sending out an approval email. (Each item may be approved by a different person.)  However, the loop hangs until an approval (or denial) is received on each item.  I had assumed this would be asynchronous, but it appears to be synchronous. Is there any way to get this to work?

Re: Loop with Approval Email

Hi msalamon,


Have you Added an apply to each action in your flow?

How is your flow created?

I have seen a doc about “Use the apply to each action in Microsoft Flow to process a list of items periodically”, please check this documentation at here, hope it could be a reference for you:


Best regards,
