Send out a reminder for a pending action taken on send an email options action email

Hi,

 

I have a flow setup that does so many things, one of the actions being sending an email out to supervisor to seek approval and I am using 'Send an email with Options' action for the same. Now I have a requirement to add an action to remind the supervisor if he does not approve after a day is passed. Should I add a parallel branch or something, please advise the best way to achieve what I am looking to do , thanks in advance.

I've done this for Approval Flows by setting up a loop in a parallel branch that sends emails after a pause (one day in your case) until a certain variable is set to a value.  Here's a screenshot.  Just substitute your Send email with options for the wait for approval step.
