Re: Custom Approvals: Comments not passing through when entered from Outlook client

Hi @Zooney1 ,

 

Upon further inspection, it appears comments are passing through when using the Start and wait for an approval connector with the Approve/Reject option, but not when using the custom approvals with the Start and wait for an approval (V2) connector.

Re: Custom Approvals: Comments not passing through when entered from Outlook client

Hi @Zooney1 

 

I've noticed that comments for custom approvals are passing through (from the Outlook email client) when the reponse options are "Approve" or "Reject".

 

Case when the response option is "Option 1".

This issue has just started affecting me and a couple of my colleages, made a test flow with the issue as below:

Re: Custom Approvals: Comments not passing through when entered from Outlook client

After hours of tinkering I came across this post and I am having the same issue to.  My flow was working perfectly until someone notified me that comments aren't show.  My flow gathers comment from various responses and send to the user.. Now the comments are showing up as

 

User 1: (Accept) {{Comment-1.value}}
User 2: (Accept) {{Comment-1.value}}

Re: Custom Approvals: Comments not passing through when entered from Outlook client

The Outlook team is working on this. It is a regression on their side, and they are looking into a fix.

Re: Custom Approvals: Comments not passing through when entered from Outlook client

Hi,

 

I was having the same issue, but when I did some testing I found that this was happening when I approve the emails fom Chrome Browser.

 

When I do it from Firefox, Outlook Desktop and IE, this does not happen.

 

Can you please test the same and let me know if this is the case for you too?

 

Regards,

 

Gowtham

The latest from the Outlook team is that the fix is in and should roll out over the next 2 days.

Hi,


Do you have the "Try the new Outlook" feature active?

When I switched off the feature it started working again.
