Skip parallel branch, Skip Approvals

Hi Team,

 

We have requirement where we need to send approval emails.

1. Email must include html content and approver should be able to approve from mail body itself (HTML cant be achieved with markdown in approvals so - "Email with Options" satisfy this need)

2. There should UI/App where approver can see his all approve request at one place (Only FLOW app satisfy this need) 

 

So to satisfy both above needs we have used both above actions as parallel branch.

 

Now the problem is that approver needs to approve from both location i.e. outlook email as well as from flow approval as those two are separate approve actions. 

So question is "Is there any way to skip the parallel branch? If one branch is finished, I dont want other to be executed - it should skip and go to next step"

How to skip one of the parallel branch if other is executed?How to skip one of the parallel branch if other is executed?

Let me know if some one have any suggestion.

Thanks in advance

Hi @sarveshshinde15 ,

It seems you would like add some options in the approval email body.

I suggest you select the Approval type as 'Custom Responses' , you can add the 'Response options' in the Approval email body.

So you don't need the parallel branch any more.

Hi @v-zhos-msft 

 

Its not about options. Its about showing HTML content in mail body. Thats not supported in Flow Approval actions. Markdown format is there but its limited formatting.

Below are the requirements which I am looking for - let me know how can I achieve it

 

1. Email must include html content and approver should be able to approve from mail body itself (HTML cant be achieved with markdown in approvals so - "Email with Options" satisfy this need)

2. There should UI/App where approver can see his all approve request at one place (Only FLOW app satisfy this need) 

Thanks
