Hi @jacomahig,

 

Thanks for the idea.

But currently there is no proper way that I could think out to check the no response status of the Approval Email.

I think submitting an idea for the Approval Email Action with a No response status would make this much easier to deal with.

For current situation, we could add the approvers all under the send Approval Email Action, seperated by ";", for example:

someone@contoso.com;Second@contoso.com

This way would have the Approval Email sent to multiple approvers, and if one of the email get responsed, it will trigger the rest of the flow actions.
