Hello 

 

I need to get "Comments" from Approving process.

I have used build-in blocks but they returned me not appropriate information - {{aprove:value}}

Could someone advice how to get comments from approving.

Hi @FreeNit / @jwhite ,

 

Update. I tested Approval Comments and it seems that this issue has been solved. This is my test result:

Hi @FreeNit 

 

So, The response comments that come in are in the form of an array. You can initlaise a string variable and do an append to string variable to extract the comments and then use that in the consecutive actions. Please see the flow below: sdf.PNG

 

you can use the variable to reference the comments in the sharepoint action now. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @FreeNit,

Have been having the same issue for the past day or so. A response was given in another thread over in the "I found a bug" forum here.

Apparently it is caused when the approval is made through Outlook, so you will still be able to use the response comments from approvals made in the "Approvals" section of https://flow.microsoft.com

Hopefully it will be resolved soon!

Hi @v-bacao-msft,

Does appear to be resolved on all platforms that I could find to test. Thank you!

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

This post is very helpful, have managed to get the comment there but, I have a question, how to make it requester can see the comment? 

 

Currently, can only the approval manager see the comment in the approval email, but it seems doesn't trigger sending the comment to the requester.

 

Will be grateful for any help you can provide.

Thank you.
