Modern Approvals

Hello, is there a way to delete a approval? My flow Failed but the approval item is still stuck at the Approvals dashboard, but cannot be Approved or Rejected or deleted.

 

Is there a workaround?

Hi avt,

 

Please try to cancel your flow runs and resubmit it to see if it works.


Hope this blog could be a reference for you:

Hello, thank you for the tip, unfortunately I tried that and it did not help (maybe I did it wrong) and now I am unable to retry it again as the next thing I tried was to delete the flow 😞

Hi avt,

 

What do you mean by “delete an approval”? Do you want to delete the Approval email?


To resubmit a flow that has failed, you first need to navigate to the exact failure in the Flow portal. Please navigate to the flow in your My flows list, select the (i) icon at the right of your flow, and then click the specific run that failed.


I just try to resubmit a flow run on my side, after I clicked the Resubmit button, the flow run again successfully.

I mean a modern approval funcionality that was added to ms flow last week, not the usual Send approval email via outlook 365 service.

Hi avt,

 

Thanks for your updates.

 

So I create a flow to send an approval email when an item is created.


Do you want to delete an Approval at Received requests page? But it seems that currently we only have Approve and Reject button, there is no more button can be used to Delete the approval.


As I haven’t seen a similar request, please consider to create a new one at Flow Ideas Forum.
