automatic reminders in power automate

I have two approvals in one flow (1x reviewer & 1x approver). Now I want to receive automatic reminders about the pending approval requests. The reminders should be sent every day or in self defined intervals until the approval has been done. 

 

Is there a solution for this?

@Havanna the way we do it is to always save the original request into a SharePoint list and we also have columns for the approver name, approval date and approval decision. Then each day a recurrence schedule flow runs to check if any of the approval dates are empty and, if so, it sends a reminder email.

@RobElliott The problem is that first the reviewer must approve before the document goes on to the approver, who then sets the content approval status to 'approved'. As far as I know you can only access one content approval status? And the reviewer is not supposed to have permissions for that. When the reviewer has approved the document, it should just be sent on to the approver. This all works as well, except that the employees are not reminded again if there is still an approval pending.
