see approval history - how ?

 

How can we visualize the approval history ? According to stephen siciliano (in my twitter @sergeluca )

"The DB admin can access it - for end users we have a feature coming imminently to view their own approval's history"

But I don't see how the DB admin can access it ? is it the common data model database ? which entities/tables ? how can we see this information ?

 

Thank you

Hi sergeluca,

 

So far, I haven’t seen a way to check the approval history once the Approve/Reject button is clicked.


There is a similar request on Flow ideas Forum, please consider to vote the idea at here:

I will help collect and report it on my side also.

I had seen on some msft post that history will be available in upcoming releases. Is there any new info as to when on what it would look like? 

Looking for functionality on two levels:

- Requestors/Approvers need to be able to see hisotry of their approvals/rejections/comments

- Admins need to be able to see all history for audit purposes

Yes, I'm getting ready to deploy a few power apps using approval flows and audit history is a requirement. Should I be building into my flows audit logging to a SQL table or will this data be available to Power BI through an admin connector or something? Is the approval history stored in CDS?

I've never be able to see the history in CDS.

What I do is i store the info in a SharePoint list (my first prototype descrbed here https://sergeluca.wordpress.com/2017/11/28/flow-approval-escalation-with-analytics/) , but a SQL Azure table is much better in production due to the huge volume of data. But that works very well
