trigger flow for "Approved" or "Rejected" in list

I have created a vacation approval list and I'm trying to get a flow to start when the approval status changes. I do not see an option for Approve Status at all in my choices for dynamic content like I've seen in other posts. What do I have to do to get that as an option?

Re: trigger flow for "Approved" or "Rejected" in list

Hi @eranpeterson,


Do you want to trigger a flow when the approval status column in the sharepoint list is changed?


If you want to trigger a flow when the approval status column in the sharepoint list is changed, Microsoft flow sharepoint connector could support the trigger when an item is created or modified currently.

triggerring a flow for a selected column is not supported in sharepoint connector in microsoft flow currently.


If you would like this feature to trigger a flow when the status column is changed to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


As an alternative way, you could add a yes/no type column "statuschanged" in your list, and create a flow with trigger "when an item is created or modified", and add a Condition to check if the value of column "statuschanged" is equal to true, if yes,do something you want, if no do nothing.



Best regards,
