Custom Approval Type based on user's selection

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know what kind of values are accepted to add in "Enter custom value" in Approval Type of the approval action?

ChanNT_0-1639465179403.png

 

I would like to change the approval type based on the user's selected values.

For example, if user selected "everyone must approve" in Power Apps, the approval type should be "Approve/Reject - Everyone must approve" and if user selected "First to respond" in app, the approval type should change to "Approve/Reject - First to respond" option.

Please kindly help if anyone knows how it could be achieved.

 

Thanks in advance.

@ChanNT this is not going to work, you will need a custom flow and you will need to save data in your backend which can have schema something like this

Record Approval Approver 1 Approver1 Status Approver 2 Approver2 Status Approver 3 Approver3 Status
Item1 Everyone John    Jill   Jack  
Item2 FirstApproval Jack   Jill   John  

 

Based on what user selects on App, update the record in the backend and the flow should first check Approval value and then the Approval status and based on it the flow should work

Hi @jinivthakkar ,

 

Thank you for the advice. 

You mean that approval flow is not working for my query and I need to use custom flow instead?
Can you please explain more about the custom flow?

 

Thank you.
