"Everyone Must Approve" is not working as expected

I have a SharePoint list which contain a field of type multi-value People/Group named "approvers", as follow:-

approv.png

 

and i define the following flow to request approvals from all the users as follow:-

where i defined if all users approve the request to change the status to "Resolved". but currently when i create a new list item and i assign it to let say userA & userB >> both users will get a notification to approve, but if one of them Approve the request, the status will change to "Resolve". while based on my above setting both users need to approve the requests for the status to be changed to "Resolved" ... is this correct? what is wrong with my flow?

Thanks

Hi @johnjohn123

 

For everyone must approve flow, the Outcome dynamic content would contains all the response from the approvers, the result would be with type "Approve,Reject,Approve".

 

If you want all the approvers should approve the request, you should check if the Outcome dynamic content contains string Reject, if yes, all the approvers has approve the request, if not, that means at least one approver has reject the request.

Hello @johnjohn123 

According to the screenshots, the approval outcome shouldn't be ready to be evaluated until both users have approved. Could you provide the outputs of an execution?

@fchopo   can you advice how i can get the outputs of an execution?

Hello @johnjohn123 

You can see the output of any action inside the execution history of a flow.
