Bug I supposed - Approval - Condition

I noticed what has to be a bug or Im just using approvals all wrong all the sudden.

I was testing my flow with one person and it works perfectly. The first approval, "Everyone must approve" has a condition right after it, where if the Outcome of the approval is "Approve", then it continues down the "If yes" branch. Normal stuff.

But when I add to or more people to the approval, the condition breaks down, only showing "False", and continues down the "If no" branch.

 

Adding three screenshots.

Hi @ThomasPetoro ,

 

Yes. If the approval type is Everyone must approve, Outcome will return all Approver’s choices for approval. Like you mentioned, "Approve, Approve, Approve".

So we could use "does not contains" directly to judge the final approval result.

Please check this similar thread and see if it helps:

Figured it out I guess. Seemed like the condition needed to say "Approve, Approve, Approve" in order for it to work.

Made the condition as follows and it works as intended:

Did you switch the approval from First to respond to Everyone must approve?  If so, that's why outcome is Approve, Approve, Approve.  if you left it on First to respond then outcome would still be Approve even if you supplied three approvers.

No, it was always at "Everyone must approve"

Outcome is a summary of all the approvals.  So when set to Everyone must approve it always returns a comma delimited list of responses equal to the number of approvers.  Its not a bug, that's the way its designed to work.
