Re: SharePoint - Set content Approval status

My issue is that I dont want to set the status to approved when it is uploaded.  I want to check the current status of the document so the Flow can send notifcations and other actions.  When a new document is uploaded or modified, i want to check the approval status.  I cant find any way of seeing the current status of the field.  If it is pending, I want to send an email to the approver.  If it is approved, i want to send an email back to the owner to let them know that it is approved.


Any thoughts?

Hi Robert:


I am fairly new to Sharepoint and I do not quite understand which E-Tag you have added in your solution. Care to elaborate?

"response": "Approve"
but in condition it is always false never true
My column type is yes/no

Re: SharePoint - Set content Approval status

I've noticed something very different about the content approval and i'm wondering if there is a workaround... Even after the content approval has completed its workflow. You can not resubmit it again.... I get a error that this file doesn't exist. Any Ideas?
