"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

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.

@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

Same here....I wonder hoe you can get the output from the other option. Thanks for the reply

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.

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.
