My approval flow send me an approval mail after I approved.

Hello everyone,


I have an approval flow and it works well except the issue that I mentioned in subject. Even if the approval process ends, I receive approval mail but my response doesn't change anything in SharePoint. Due to avoiding from the receiving unnecessary email, I want to solve this problem.


I'll share my flow's screen shots. Please help me 🙂


This is my approval step in the flow.



I didn't figure out where is wrong.

You need to have a condition after the approval that check the "Outcome" (from Dynamic properties) of the approval process.  If the Outcome is "Approve", then update the SharePoint item as appropriate.  If the Outcome is not approve, do something else.

I can't tell from your screen shots what actions you are taking after the approval.  Please post screen shots of what comes after the approval.

Since you are using a When an item is created or modified trigger, beware of an infinite loop.




If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

Thank you for your interest. This is my first condition after first approval;


After that there is another approver. If second approver approves the item, Its content status will be changed as "Approve."
