Do I need to use apply to each for start approval

I created a flow which does the following in order:

- when sharepoint form is created

- apply to each

- get response from sharepoint form

- create item in sharepoint list

- route approval to manager(everyone from assigned list)

- apply to each 2

- condition: if approved, send email. If rejected, send email.

- route approval to director (anyone from assigned list)

- apply to each 3

- condition: if approved, send email. If rejected, send email.


This has worked fine for 1 month. However, today, the part on "apply to each 3" just failed. I tried to use dynamic content to redo the step on "apply to each 3" but dynamic content refuses to get any variables from the step "route approval to director". I don't know what happened and this is very frustrating. Please let me know soon as this flow is currently active and people are using it.

Hi @rele_2018,


Could you share a full screenshot of your flow?

I am not sure with SharePoint form you mentioned. Could you provide more details on it?

If it is the trigger SharePoint - When an item is created, how could you add an Apply to each to Get response?

Besides, have you tried recreating the flow if possible?

Please share more details to help reproduce this issue.


Best regards,

I used the Forms in Sharepoint to capture responses.



Here are the screenshots:

basically this has worked well for the past 1 month, but yesterday it just failed at the apply to each 3 stage. I can't redo the flow because people are already using it.


the "apply to each" that you see at each step wasn't added by me, Flow added it automatically. Flow adds it automatically before every "Condition" i added. Is that normal? In the interim, i managed to delete "apply to each 3 " in my workflow and added a condition. Somehow Flow didn't automtically add "apply to each" before the condition this time.


It works for now, BUT my question is: do we need to use apply to each before "Condition"?
