Trying to get the names of the Approver using flow along with their status: Please someone advise

Hello,

 

I am trying to get back 7-8 approver names back to a document library column called as SignedBy and Status of them as well. 

This is my Flow, I am not sure what is wrong with it I am unable to get the ID value when we select "Update File or Update Items" in flow:

 

The First screenshot explains the last part of it from where I need to update the name of the Approver along with the status. 

I have tried using the Update file properties and Update file. Please guide me through this one.

I would assume its the outcome of the Compose above it.  Assuming that is where you are putting the names and responses from the approvers pulled from the current item in the responses.

Since there are multiple approvers you want to use Append to a String Variable instead of Set a Variable inside your Apply to Each 2 loop.  Using Set a variable will overwrite the previous approver's values.

This is the total flow that I have, I am unable to update the names back to the SignedBy column in my Document library.

When I use Update file properties or update items, I do not see the ID option in the Dynamic content

Any help will be appreciated!! 🙂

The flow screenshots sequence may have changed due to HTML, I have numbered them.
