Approval flow for PowerApps form


I need help with setting up a flow to be used in a PowerApps canvas app (form) and the data resides in a SPO list.


I have Section A in PowerApps which is completed by User1, they will enter there email address and a supervisors email address.

The supervisor must then view the form and approve or reject it and type into the PowerApps form a Senior Managers email address to complete section B.

So i need an email approval email to be sent to the supervisor and then another email to the senior manager advising them of the form and to complete Section B.

I know it's simple scenario, but I havent used Flow much and would be great to get this set up.

I suspect that the easiest way to approach your issue is to have a status column in the SharePoint list.  When user 1 enters the data for Approver one and the item is submitted, the status is changed to a specified value.  A Flow then runs when an item is changed and checks the status value and sends email as appropriate.  The same process would take place when the first approver does what they need to do - the status changes and Flow send an email to the second approver.

Hi @ScottShearer 

Thanks, sorry for the delay in responding I've been away.

I can see the status column helping with my scenario and allowing it to trigger when the form is as different stages, but how do I get flow to provide the URL of the item (link to the PowerApps form) being completed by user 1 and supervisor, rather than it provide a link to the item in the SPO list, as this is what I need, both the supervisor and senior manager to be able to go to the PowerApps form and complete there relevant sections?
