Custom Approval: Need to update File Properties after approver approves

Hi All,


I have spent a better part of 4 hours trying to figure this out. I made a flow that should allow me to do what the usual built-in Request Signoff can't. Basically i need the flow to do the following:


* Send Email to request for approval - > Approve or Reject - > Send notification to requestor - > Change Sharepoint Online Document property of the selected file to log who the approver was, sign-off status to reject/approve, and the approval date.


There seems to be no way to do the last time after the approver clicks on the approve/reject or am I just missing it?


Thanks in advance.

Use get user profile action because you are taking input of approval email.

2. Add compose after approval and supply time as input. In this way you can capture time. And update the same in SharePoint list.
