Approval Flows Re-Starting

Good afternoon,


I have two approval flows that have been running flawlessly for about 2 months. In the past week, both have started "re-starting" when they reach the last step, running in a continuous loop.


The first approval flow looks for a new created item on Sharepoint and runs approvals and Sharepoint list updates after each approval/rejection.


The second approval flow looks for updated items on Sharepoint, but to keep it from looping, also looks at another field that is modified once the first approval starts.


As I mentioned, neither has had any issues since we started until now.


Is there an update to Flow that is causing this? Our internal users are getting frustrated, and I can't cancel them once they re-start.

Re: Approval Flows Re-Starting

Hi @delaney_langsto ,

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Please checking if there are other flows will trigger the approval flow.

Turn off the other flows to check the issue if still exist.
