Flow - Capturing information from Approver

I am working on a project of automating Professional Development Request process. To this end, I am developing a Workflow (using Flow) that sends approval request to immediate manager when an item is created in SharePoint Online List. There is a requirement that the manager should decide whether the requested Professional Development is required or not by selecting “Yes” or “No” from a Choice column created in the SharePoint list before Approving or Rejecting.

 

Is any way to make the “Column” which has choice value of “Yes” or “No” visible to the approver. I am new for Flow and any help is appreciated. 

 

Thank you!

Ayn

@Ayn 

It sounds like what you really want is a two stage sequential approval.  Why not start an approval for the manager to say whether or not the training is required.  If that is approved, the start another approval for the specific training requested.  This would eliminate the need for the yes/no column.

Hi @Ayn ,

 

You could create a Yes/No type column (Yes or No) in the sharepoint list for recording if the requested Professional Development is required or not.

And then you could create a flow as below:

Note:The manager could reply the email with the seleted choice and then the  (Yes or No) column's value would be updated.
