Start and Wait Approval - Custom Response - Wait for one response



Building a flow that allows an approval route to start once a file is uploaded to a specific file in sharepoint.  There are 4 approvers in the process however I want the flow to wait till each approver has completed their response then move onto the next one.  However, I noticed when the first person approvers they all approve, I have been looking into sequential approval, but haven't worked that one out. 


Could I use start and wait for approval and use the custom response - wait for one response.  I have followed Microsoft guidance however the title and details box doesn't appear to allow me to complete my flow.

Anyone any ideas on how I can get this to appear or what I've done wrong? 


Thanks for any help!

If you want to wait for each response then this is the way you would have to do it.  The problem would be that you will generate 4 separate approvals for each person ( or at least 4 for the last person to respond).  That could get very confusing.  I would do one of these for each person in a parallel branch.  That wouldn't really let user's see other people's responses, but its the only way to do it without choosing the order for each user.
