Power Automate (Flow) for 4+ Approvers

Hi All,

 

Looking for some guidance as I'm running into a more than 8 nested values issues and I'm trying to figure out the best way to organize my flow to get around this. 

 

Currently my Flow triggers off a SharePoint list (when a new item is added) and here are the steps:

 

1. Condition: Identifies which request type 

2. Condition: Identifies which department

3. First Approver

4. If Yes > moves to Approval #2 

5. If Yes > moves to Approval #3 and updates SharePoint with Approval Date and Updates the Status

 

After Step 5 I need another layer of Approval so I need a total of 4 approvals. This is the point where the 'nested values' error comes up and I can no longer add the condition of Yes or No. 

 

I've looked into options to get around this and can't find anything. Has anyone had a situation with more than 3 approvers that also involves updating statuses and pushing approval dates to SharePoint? How did you get around this? Is the HTTP calling the right option? Does anyone have examples of that?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

There is no particular reason you need to Nest all the approvals inside the one above.  If you create a variable, or one for each approval outcome, then you can pull the approvals out from under each other and run them in a serial fashion.  See the attached design.
