Re: Send a single approval email when adding multiple new items

@GTS1618 

Can you provide some more detail regarding what you are trying to accomplish? 

You'll need to find some way to group the items together and then kick ouf a single Approval for all of them.   If you can explain your requirement a little more, I can likely provide a solution.

Re: Send a single approval email when adding multiple new items

I need to approve several items from a list at the same time as I do more than a hundred records. I Use the template: "Send approval when a new item is added"

@GTS1618 

One way to approach this might be to use a recurrence trigger that fires peridocially - once an hour maybe....

The Flow would then:

  • retrieve all items from the list for which an approval has not yet been started
  • update each list item to indicate that an approval is under way
  • start an approval
    • include in the approval details a link to each item that is to be approved
    • the links can be place in a table using markdown syntax
  • Loop thorough each item again when an approval decision has been made and update each item as appropriate

There is no "out of the box" way to start a single approval on multiple items by selecting them in the list.

 

If you need an example, please post here.
