Power Automate approval flow

Hello,

 

I have a question i have a few conditions that need to be fulfilled based on certain conditions. 

1. If the submitter is a DP, the approval status is set to "Approval"

2. If the submitter is a Higher Manager, the approval status is set to "Approval"

 

So far i have a When an item is created - SharePoint List

then i have a condition that reads: Submitter is equal to DP, but i don't know what will come next on the If yes... as i want the flow to automatically set the Status of the item in the SharePoint list to Approved base on the conditions. 

 

Thank you,

@patty789 you'll need a column in your list to hold the approval status. Then in the condition if the submitter is a DP (whatever that is), in the If yes channel add a SharePoint Update item action and in the Status field type Approve. In the If no channel you could add another condition to check if the Submitter is a Higher Manager then in the If channel add another Update item action and enter Approve. In the If no channel you could add a Start and wait for an approval action. You'd then have another Update item action and select Outcome for the Status column. You could then send an email to the submitter including the approval decision and any other information.
