Seeing Approval Column and Comments against new document

Hey all - Apologies for the post, new to the Power Automate function and delved deep into support and other areas, but have hit a road block. Hoping that someone may be able to assist or point me in the right direction.

 

Is there a way for the approval marker to appear in a column next to the document once approved. by all receipients? I know you can do this through a single approver through versioning settings, but can I create an add to the flow so that it shows the approval for the rest of the team without having to go through action items in the power automate site? I believe I have done this below, but it appears I am missing something as it's not updating?

 

Further to this, is it possible see the comments that people wrote against the document or even better yet who still needs to approve through the columns against the documents?

 

I have created the flow below

Everyone needs to approve before accepted

Created a column called ApproveStatus and identified that everyone needs to sign off before this updates

And condition is below for yes or no

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks everyone!

You should use 'Outcome' instead of 'responses' in your case to update the approval status into SP

 

For the comments, since there are multiple 'responses' from multiple approvers in your case, you need to use a For each loop to append those single comments into one string and show it into SP

 

There is a dynamics value called 'response comment' I believe

Thanks @psycrkz1

 

Updated to 'Outcome' hopefully this rectifies the issue 🙂 greatly appreciated!

 

I'm a little lost with the 'For each loop' instruction, but will look further into this and start playing around. Will mark as solved 🙂
