What post or forum are yall getting these updates from? I'm looking all over the Flow community for some OP regarding this... I need a link to where Microsoft is disseminating this information... I have a business critical solution impacted by this issue and my stakeholders were expecting an answer today.


Hi @Stephen, I don't know if you are also involve in the flow issues, if not, could you help to coordinate us to the one who can update about the plan and actial situation?

It's been more than a month and now we are facing serious complaints from the management team. They may consider to stop using flow for company application...

 

Thank you.

Re: Error responding to Flow Approval in Outlook

Good afternoon,

 

I am also encountering the same error with Flow Approvals while trying to approve in Outlook Client. However, Webmail works fine for approving. Is there going to be a fix for Outlook Client?

 

Thanks,

Michelle

We are also seeing this error in Outlook, its a similar thing with SharePoint access approvals as well. I just get an error that says "there was an error".

I got an answer today from MS, and the issue is fixed now.

"The backend team has advised that  your current Outlook Desktop App be updated to a version greater than 11727, and that will resolve the issue."

Good morning all,

 

The updated version of Outlook is not solving our issue with approving a flow.  Still getting the error, see screen print below.  The Approve button seems to work, but once I click Submit, the error is triggered.

Re: Error responding to Flow Approval in Outlook

My user base is growing for Approvals and yet the Outlook Desktop version is still returning "An error occured. Please try again later." It's affecting everyone that uses the Approvals module.

 

Can we please get a bump up in priority to address this issue? This is a key functionality feature as part of the Microsoft Flow offering and the fact that it isn't working looks bad for everyone involved.

 

For now, this is how I am fixing the problem -- by literally linking my approvers to the Outlook web version to do their approvals (where the Approve/Reject buttons actually work). Not the sleekest solution...
