@Mhak I found the problem, use outcome in your condition and make sure whoever gets the Approval request is the owner of the records that needs Approval or Rejection. If they arent the owner, it throws an error. I hope this solves your long existing problem with Approval.

Hi @onyebuchiboss 

 

Use the Outcome dynamic output and compare it with Approve

Hi

When it does not work can you check the flow run for the error message in that case

If you put Outcome, it will say no subsequent action after the condition, and it will fail.  

 

If you put Responses, it will say false even if you click Approve on a condition Responses is equal to Approve

@RezaDorrani  and @Mhak its saying "no subsequent action after the condition ". How can I get past this.

I am on exactly the same boat. It worked for me yesterday then today, it started failing. 

 

Not sure if it is a bug or an updated feature without any documentation yet. 

 

Previously, I used Response on all my approvals. Now they just messed it up a bit...I don't quite get the difference between start and wait for an approval, create an approval and wait for an approval and why they have different dynamic content. 

 

HELP!!!

 

 

@RezaDorrani @Mhak I did a microsoft demo approval a while a go, I used "Response" and not "Responses", and that one worked. How can I generate "Response" and not "Responses" (without the S). Like the below image, I have followed all stepped strictly, but still generate the one with an response instead of Response(s).capture.png

@v-yamao-msft please look at this, you might know somethignwe dont. cheers.

 

Hi @onyebuchiboss ,

 

Basically, we are now using the Outcome to determine the approval result, and Response has now been removed.

Responses contain all the details of the approval and will be output as an array.

Please refer to this similar thread and see if it helps:

@RezaDorrani  Your answer is correct, but what if I have multiple approval sections. Do I have to make several conditions? Because I found that when I use outcome it is specific for a single approval section, not all the sections.

 

How can walkaround this issue?
