"Response" field not available for Approval workflow

Hi

 

I want to start an approval workflow using "Create an Approval", but I don't see the "Response" on the available fields of the output  to add it on the next condition step. Has this changed for another field? How do I fetch the response?

 

Thanks,

 

Ezequiel

Re: "Response" field not available for Approval workflow

Hello,

It looks like create an approval does not have Outcome as an option.

I was able to get Outcome by using Start and wait for an approval.

Hope this helps!

@ezequiel you need to use Outcome from the dynamic content to get the approval response.

Re: "Response" field not available for Approval workflow

@RobElliottThanks for the response. That is the problem as Outcome is not in the list of available fields. Am I using the wrong connector? I'm using the one called "Create an Approval" Thanks again

Hi Ezequiel,

I found that you can also use the create a approval action,

Than use the wait for an approval action. And use the approval ID.

Than you will be able to select outcome as a property dynamically.

Re: "Response" field not available for Approval workflow

Thanks @Jcook . I tried that but it is not very intuitive. I run the flow and it ended without waiting for me to approve or reject. I see on the output that the ID is "36f55414-977a-4104-906a-7cacfadd19a0"

 

Thinking on the Flow...I send the item for approval or decline...how do I continue with the process if the Flow ends without waiting for the result. I'm not sure if I understand the purpose of the "create an approval" action. Do you know how to utilize it? 

 

Thanks

Hello @ezequiel 

 

Could you share a picture of your Flow, I tried using the Create a approval, with a Wait for a approval. And it seems to wait for my response.
