Hi @resham ,

 

Thanks for sharing the images.

 

It seems that you have enabled Content approval status in the list.

 

If you want to update the content approval status after the request is approved/rejected, please add action Set content approval status before the action Send an email.

 

I have created a flow from the template Start approval when a new item is added, the content approval status could be updated then by adding action Set content approval status.

@resham 

Can you post a screen shot of your Flow?  That will make it much easier to assist.

Nothing in a SharePoint list will change automatically as a resuly of an approval - you must add a SharePoint action in Flow in order to update the SharePoint list item.

Please see the below screeen shot.

 

After approving also the status is still showing as pending thats the concern,

@resham 

Your screen shot indicates that action has not yet been taken on the approval request.

Is the Team Lerad column a person or group column?  Does it allow for multiple entries?

@ScottShearer , thanks for the reply. when the user is entering the team lead name/email ID, they are getting the notifications to approve or reject and the same time, user is also getting the notifications whether the leave has been approved or rejected. But the status is showing as pending. error 3.JPGerror 4.JPG

Thanks Mabel,it worked for me .

 

One more concern is whenever any leave request is raised it always shows requested by "MYNAME"

 

It should be agent name whose name should be reflect instead of my name as requestor.
