I've created a flow that sends an approval request to one manager to another (In this case there are 4 managers who need to review the entries in the list and approve), when one manager approves then a request is sent to the other manager to view and approve till so on. So I've got the flow to work before but now I've updated it and made it an recurrence trigger flow, the only issue is that there's a limit of actions. At the final stage for the final manger to view, It won't let me add the action to update item to approve. So how would I come about it.
This is how the flow looks like, I've zoomed out quite a bit to show the whole flow process.
As you can see it won't let me put in an action in the yes box.
Consider breaking your flow into child flows, so for example let 2 approvals in the Main flow and the other 2 approvals in the child flow and call the Child flow from the Main flow using Run a Child Flow action and you can pass whatever parameters from parent to child.
