Manager Appoval - not for managers

Hi all,


I built a flow with the manager approval function. If someone triggers an action, his manager needs to approve it, then some stuff will be done. This works fine.

But if e.g. a high manager triggers the action, his manager still needs to approve this. But he should be able to do it by himself.

So I want to skip the management approval when reaching a special management level.


Any ideas?

Thanks and best regards,

Hi @efingdmi, you could add a condition that if the Office 365 Get user profile (v2) email = a specific email then don't do the approval action, but apart from that there isn't an action to do what what you want.

Hi  @RobElliott,


thanks for your answer. This is kind of a workaround but the data needs to be updated manually all the time. I don't like that 🙂

My workaround now is, to check if the requester has direct reporters and if yes, he skips the approval process.


Kind regards,
