My approval flow getting misbehave

Hi, I configured two level approval with share point list, First approval works fine but when goes for the second approval always getting approved condition, even if i select reject. Flow.jpgFlow1.JPGThanks



Hi @Sakthisp87 


Can you please remove the start an approval action and replace that with Start and Wait for an approval action? That way it will wait for the approval before moving to the next step. 


Hope this Helps!

Hi @Sakthisp87 ,


Do you mean that the response from the second approval action is always Approve even though you Rejected the request?


About the first approval action “Start an approval”, you’ve renamed the action, I am not sure is it “Create an approval” or “Start and wait for an approval”?


I have set up a flow likes below with nested conditions, however, the issue you mentioned doesn’t occur.


The response from the second approval action will be properly returned with Approve or Reject.



Best regards,
