Can Flow allow multiple groups for approval?

My company is considering Flow to help with tracking of some of our manual workflow processes.

 

Before I dive into it, can someone tell me if it is possible to set up an approval flow that requires approval from two groups before moving on?  For example, i need just one person from each group to approve, then the flow continues on?

 

I couldn't seem to figure this out when playing around and didn't find much info on it when searching.  Any guidance will be appreciated.  thx.

Re: Can Flow allow multiple groups for approval?

Yes, that's possible.  To do that use two different Approval Actions set for 'First to Respond'.  Flow doesn't support assigning Approvals to groups so you'll need to add the membership of the first group to the First Approval and the membership of the second group to the second approval.  You can position the approvals either to run in parallel or one after the other.  But when complete check the results and approve the item only if Outcome of both Approvals is "Approve".
