Request document sign-off - update file properties

Hi,

 

I´m trying to create a flow that requests the approval of a document to a list of people. Everyone must approve.

However, when I try to update the document properties it fails if the users have the document open. Does anyone knows if there is a way of updating the file properties even if the files are opened?

 

It´s really frustrating, since the SharePoint Sign-off default flow supports this!! Unfortunately, it only requires one person to approve the document, and in my case I need to wait for everyone.

 

Thanks for your support!

Hi @ag23 ,

 

Unfortunately, as you described, this is a built-in Flow, so we can't modify its logic. Its approval type is First to respond, which does not seem to meet your needs. You can consider submitting your suggestions in the ideas forum to expand the functionality of this flow: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Ideas/idb-p/MPAIdeas
