Publishing form on SharePoint list with approval

Hi Team 

I have simple form which add laptops to SharePoint list
Form > SharePoint List

 

I have created a simple approval flow based on template. 

 

But no matter if I approve the laptop or not the power app add it to SharePoint list strait forward. 


How do I add something like MS flow in the middle that Laptop will be not added to the list until it`s approved?

It`s like I need to place flow in the middle of the process

 

Power app form > Flow > SharePoint list ??

 

Or is the other way to do it?


I have tried the Approval system on the SharePoint end but it`s making it worse for edit later.

Re: Publishing form on SharePoint list with approval

Hi @m0le,

Do you want to add a approval flow in the middle of the process?

Do you not want to add a new Laptop record into your SP list directly until the record is approved by the approver?

Based on the needs that you provided, I think the PowerApps Button Trigger could achieve your needs.

You could consider fire a flow from your app when you click the "Submit" button, then pass corresponding Laptop Info (e.g. Username, Model, Office, Location/Status, etc) into your flow. After that, within your flow, display the passed Laptop info within the Approval email, if the approver approved your request, create a new item within your SP list, otherwise, do nothing.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Set the OnSelect proeprty of the "Submit" button to following:

'20181129_case5_1'.Run(
DataCardValue7.Text,
DataCardValue8.Text,
DataCardValue9.Selected.Value,
DataCardValue10.Selected.Value,
DataCardValue11.Selected.Value,
DataCardValue12.Text
)

On your side, you should type:

'YourFlowName'.Run(
       DataCardValue7.Text,  /* Specify proper values for corresponding arguments of the 'YourFlowName'.Run() function*/
       DataCardValue8.Text,
       DataCardValue9.Selected.Value,
       DataCardValue10.Selected.Value,
       DataCardValue11.Selected.Value,
       DataCardValue12.Text
)
