Approval Flow

Hello,

 

I have a leave request application and the data source is a an excel table from OneDrive for business. I would like to make an approval flow where if a new record (request) is added to the excel sheet it will ask for an approval from the manager, so how can I do that?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @sr12 ,

 

Do you have Sharepoint as this would be a better option.  Doing it in Excel would be a bit of an uphill battle as:

 

1) There isnt a trigger for Excel updates and you would need to use the OneDrive file is  modified trigger

2) You wont be able to accurately link to the request for approvals especially if multiple requests were raised at the same time
