Bug in Approval Flow

I have a parallel flow set up to update items in sharepoint as responses are collected. The second person to approve continues to override the items in the sharepoint list from the first approver... but it didn't do this until early this week. Before the flow worked perfectly and no changes were made. I believe there is a bug.

Hi @mhunsaker7 ,

 

I’ve made another test and the issue still could not be confirmed by me.

Could you please try with another flow to see if the issue still exists?

Hi @mhunsaker7 ,

 

Could you share a screen shot on how is your flow set up?

 

I will help reproduce this issue if I could get more details on your flow.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

Here is a screen shot of my flow. The update item or update item 3 are overriding two of the fields from whichever approver submitted first. The fields that are being over ridding are always the same either "DFS approver" and "DFS comments" or "pricing approver" and "pricing comments" depending on which approval happened first. @v-yamao-msft 

Hi @mhunsaker7 ,

 

Thanks for providing the screenshot.

 

What’s your current situation? Does the issue still exist on your side?

 

I have made a test likes below, the issue you’ve mentioned doesn’t occur. The responses from first approver and second approver will be saved to corresponding column in the list.

Please take another try with it.

I actually created a new flow set up the same way.. and the issue still exists.. Here is a new screen shot. The approver name that was saved from the first approval is overwritten and appears blank on my list after the second approver submits. I've pasted an image of the new flow below as well as a photo of the script from the flow that ran. As you can see from the script somehow pricing approver is being replaced with "" leaving it blank in the list.
