Problem connecting pieces

Dear all, 


I am new to Microsoft Flow and Power Automate and I am trying to do something that seems simple:

  • Creating a workflow when someone fills in a form  ---  I have done it using Flow, and a trigger with a Microsoft Form component )
  • Add an approval step by a Manager ---  done using the approval flow element ) 
  • The manager assign an team member to work on a task ---  not done, that's the place where I am stuck. I have tried with PowerAutomate, but I don't know how to connect it with the flow created ... 
  • The team member perform the work and click somewhere for the flow to go to next step --- I don't know how I can assign a workflow step to someone ... 
  • A reviewer review the work done and clic on next step.
  • the requester is informed that the work was performed.

Would someone have an idea on how to solve that problem ? I have spent hours trying to look on how to do it, and I am really stuck ... 


thanks for your help

"The manager assign an team member to work on a task"
This step shall be completed only if manager approves, right?
Hope this helps

Today, the data is only stored on Microsoft Form. 

I don't know what would be the best principle to follow. If needed I can look on how to send the data to Sharepoint.
