Multiple approvers-single approval status

Hi

I have created an approval flow that needs to be approved by all. the issue is that it works when i have one email in the 'assigned to' but with multiple emails it rejects the document even if it is approved by all. I have tried with both "Outcome" and "Responses". this is urgent. please help

ok @jazz1  I saw now what do you need please follow this example that works for 2 approvers.

so if the first approver clic on approve then the count increments in 1, and if the second approve clics on approve then counts change to 2, and you have all approvers mark as approve your flow, but if the secord approver clic on reject you have just one and maeby you can send a message to notify why your request was rejected

Hi @ChristianAbata ,

Yes, i was using the email address from my organization but changed it to take screenshot.

the switch button will only allow to add emails or it has another effect.

 

just to add to this, it works perfectly with one email, the problem starts when adding multiple emails in the assigned to field.

@jazz1  just to add emails with a correct fotmat, becouse I saw your flow and if you test it, what the flows needs to do is send an approval email to all approvers and when the last approver sends the response the flow is going to continue to see if there is approve or reject

@ChristianAbata 

 

I edited the 'assigned to' emails just for the screenshot.

Can you please guide me what needs to be changed if I want the flow to approve if everyone in 'assigned to' field approves.

Can you please show me how to achieve the objective.

shure @jazz1  please see this post
