Send email with Options approval time limit



I have created an approval process with send email with options being used as an approval. If a request is submitted and the user hasn't approved it, is there a time limit on how long it will run for ? Will the approval process cancel out after a certain period of time or will it automatically approve the request. Details:


Email sent to HR to approve leaver

Once approved it will send an email to various departments to notify them of the staff leaving


Also how many approvals can you send to the flow

30 days

Thank you for the response. Will the flow cancel or be automatically approved ?

Flow will timeout after 30 days. You can create long approval flows to bypass 30 days limit. Search on YouTube"Power Automate Long Approval Flows". There is some great content on that.
