Repeat previous steps

Hi,

 

I'm using flow for a little while and getting well with it.

But now, trying to build and aprroval flow I face something I don't know how to deal with.

What I need to is:

> Send an e-mail to someone1 to put a file in Sharepoint

> When a file in created in the desired folder start an approval flow to someone2

> If someone2 approves the file, ok; if rejected send a new mail to someone1 asking to upload a new file

> Get back to "> When a file in created in the desired folder start an approval flow to someone2"

> If someone2 approves the file, ok; if rejected send a new mail to someone1 asking to upload a new file

And the do this forever until someone2 approves the file.

 

A print of the flow to make it more visual:

I'm stuck in the red line.

Re: Repeat previous steps

Hi @dkiill,

 

Could you please share a bit more about the "Update row" action within your flow?

Further, could you please share a full screenshot of your flow's configuration?

 

I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a proper trigger, here I use Flow Button trigger.
  • Add a "Send an email" action.
  • Add a "Do Until" action, click "Edit in advanced mode", type the following formula:
  • @equals(body('Start_an_approval')?['response'], 'Approve')
    Within "Do Until" action, add a "When a file is created in a folder" trigger, specify Site Address and Folder Id. 

         Add a "Start an approval" action, then add a Condition, left input box set to Response dynamic content of "Start an approval" action, right input box set to Approve, middle drop down, choose is equal to.

 

       Within "If/yes" branch of Condition, add a "Send an email 2" action to notify the user that the uploaded file has been approved. Within "If/no" branch of Condition, add a "Send an email 3" action to notify the user that the uploaded file has been rejected and please upload a new file.

The flow works successfully as below:22.JPG

Re: Repeat previous steps

It works, Thanks.

 

The problem was that I don't knew i could put in the do until a action that will happen after it.

But doing it in advanced options works fine.

 

Really thankfull.
