Cancelled flow keeps actions on going

I have an issue with a flow that is triggered by Powerapps.


The flow sents approvals to different users and the issue is that some of the them have given their answers but the flow hasn't updated the excel files that stores them. I want to see what's the issue behind it BUT, after cancelling the flow, the Loop action keeps on going, and doesn't allow me to see the actions included in them.

Re: Cancelled flow keeps actions on going

Approvals within Microsoft Flow would show as success only after Flow has received the Approval response.

So if the flow has been cancelled before it get any responses for the Approval, I suspect it will stuck on the pending status.


By the way, from your image, it seems the Approval has been sent multiple times, if there is one is under pending status, then the whole Apply to each would show pending.

Re: Cancelled flow keeps actions on going

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the response!


You're right, there were several approvals. However, I received feedback from users that repplied to the approval request, and the flow didn't updated my excel file according to my actions. Therefore, I wanted to check what was the issue (Permissions, conectivity,etc.). That's why I wanted to have the option see the unsuccesul actions. For me it would be great if flow would allow us to check that, even if it was cancelled or failed.


Now, with this situation I cannot check what was the issue of my flow.
