No response at approvals

Hello,

starting another post cause the one here has already a solution, even that my question is somehow related 🙂

 

Can you please give me an example on what should i do to configure approvals to wait for 7 days and add a condition after that: if we have a response of any kind, do something (send an e-mail with the response) and if we dont have a response, restart that approval step if its possible.

What i created so far, but just starts another approval, without loops. Tested for approval to wait 2 minutes and go on if nothing happens, and the condition is set to start if Approval is succesful or in timeout:

Hi @Dorul,

 

Do you want to set the duration of time out for the approval as 7 days? In the Settings of the action, please set duration as P7D, then the approval will wait for 7 days, then time out if there is no response.

About your scenario, I assume that you could try the following flow.

The flow is manually triggered by a button, then start an approval. Without using a Condition to check if the response is Approve/Reject, add the action Send an email directly.

Then add a parallel branch, adding the action Start an approval2. Then configure run after with the selections “has failed”, “is skipped”, “has timed out”.

Please take it for a reference and try it on your side.

Thank you very much for your answer @v-yamao-msft thats alot easier/faster than what i did 🙂

but can we use something like "Do until", so it will just repeat that approval every 7 days, incase we dont have an answer from the approver?

 

Edit: any idea why flows fails even that it doesnt actually fail?Capture.JPG

Any idea, anyone? Still cant figure it out how to resend an approval after 7 days, instead of just a reminder.

I tried to include a Do until, but something went terrible wrong, as the flow sent 10 approval requests in 2 seconds, so I had to cancel all runs.
