Multiple approval responses

Hi I'm quite new to flow and wondered if somoene could sanity check what's going on with this simple process. We have an approval process being triggered when a new software release document is uploaded. Each department manager should be approving the document based on their own departments content of the latest software release, we're also using this as a trigger to make sure they've notified their team of impending functionality changes. All I want to do is record their approval/rejection into a list so i can keep track of any particual department who has issues with the release. 

 

Created the flow below and it's writing records to the list but during testing if anyone person rejects the document it sets all lines in the list to rejected. In the screenshot of the list Darren approved the document whereas Paul rejected it but it's written rejected in both cases. 

 

I'm expecting there's something obvious I'm not getting with how this works so any guidance would be appreciated.

Re: Multiple approval responses

Hi @DarrenSmith,

 

I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

 

Please choose the Approver response dynamic content of the Start an approval action in the Approved-Rejected field in the Create item field.

 

I have made a test to create a flow as below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

The items would be created in the list as below:

Best regards,

Re: Multiple approval responses

Thanks Alice, That was it i was taking the overall response, not the one from the approver. Tutorial i was following implied that was the right thing to use, but thought it would have been something simple like that.
