Check Approval Status for Multiple

Dear expert,

 

I have setup an approval workflow with multiple approver. I can only found the outcome and approver response after all of recipient have made the response from History tab. Is there a way I can check the approval status from Power Automate?

Thank you.

Re: Check Approval Status for Multiple

There is no "out of the box" method to see who has/has not taken action on an approval if all approvers are part of a single Approval action.  I believe that you could query CDS (where approval data is stored) and find the information there but that would required a premium license and I'm not sure that it is even supported.

As an alternative, you might consider an parallel approval scenario.  If implemented properly, you can see who has/has not taken action.

If the number of approvers will vary, you can have a loop that assigns approval actions to each approver - you can update the list as each of them completes.  To use this concept, you'll need to turn on Concurrency control in the loop.  Otherwise, the Approvals will take place sequentially.

I just have a case that the approvers are vary. Could you please give me more detail about you mentioned?
