New Flow User, Need Help with Approval Flow

I am just getting into this sharepoint flow business. I have a general idea for the workflow in mind already but need a few breadcrumbs to get me on the right path.


I have an excel file that i want to have multiple people review and approve OR hopefully give them the opportunity reject while providing some notes in feedback.  My  intent is to have one person approve or reject but always have it passed to the next person to review, then come back to me with a list of feedback. If incrementing from one person to the next is unecessary and all can review at once and get notes back to me where applicable, that is fine too.


To achieve what i am looking for, what steps do you think I would take in my flow?

HI @TVTinbender 


Please see the screesnhot below:

Here, I have my excel sheet in sharepoint and I have provided the ID and created a sharing link to it. Can you specify where your excel is? Next, I created an approval with custom options, (you can use the regular ones if you do not want to create the custom ones) and then added email addresses of every approver who should look at the excel. 



Hope this Helps!
