Re: approval type START AN APPROVAL action , how do i use it?

Hi JenVitug,

 

When you use the Approval type “Everyone from the assigned list”, if you have several email addresses in the Assigned to field, the flow will not run succeed until all the assigned to people submit a response.


While when you use the Approval type “Anyone from the assigned list”, though you have several email addresses in the Assigned to field, once one of them submitted a response, the flow will run succeed.
Please try it on your side.


PS: Please post Flow related issues on Flow Forum, you will get the most qualified respondents at there, and other customers who have the same issue will share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thanks for your understanding.

Best regards,
