Resubmit approvals for set content approval status

I’ve gotten to a point where everything in my content status approval works except that I can’t resubmit it once the workflow is approved or rejected. I have the Etag, and content approval is enabled. Seems to be failing at the “get metadata” connector on the second run through the flow. We need the ability to submit revisions for the same document.

Re: Resubmit approvals for set content approval status

Hi @ashmon07 ,


Could you share a screen shot on how is the flow configured?


My understanding is that you’ve approved/rejected the request and update the content approval status in the list, however, you want to revise the response to the opposite one by resubmitting the flow, then the flow failed. Am I right?


I have made the following flow for testing, it seems that once the Approve status is updated with certain value, it cannot be changed anymore.


The error message I’ve got on my side is:

The current state of the item is Approved and the following action Reject cannot be implemented



I would suggest you submit a request on Flow Ideas Forum for submitting revisions for the same document:


Best regards,
