Multiple approvers Updating Status in SP List

Hello All,

 

Here is my requirement....

 

i have 2  users who need to Approve and then that makes the document fully Approved.

 

i was able to finish the approval flow, but the issue is "i want the Status for each Approver in my SP list to be updated after the First approver Approves, rather than waiting for the Approver-2 also to approve".

 

 

i am attaching my flow..

 

any help/thoughts please...?

I tried in this way...

 

1. Did 2 different flows.

2. Used Get item to get the status of each Approver and then updated the SP list.

 

Thanks.

Split the Approval action into two approval actions on parallel branches.  Then you can have update actions in each branch that record the results for that approver.

Hello Pstork1,

 

if i run indivudal flows, how should i update my "Overall status of document" based on the Approval response coming from the Approvers...?

 

Thank you.

Re: Multiple approvers Updating Status in SP List

You aren't going to run two flows, just two branches of the same Flow.  I'm assuming you are recording the results in seperate fields.  If you aren;t then you'll have to read what is currently there, concatenate it with the new results and write it back.
