Approve or Reject just leads to Microsoft Flow

I have created two flows


1st is a Form to SharePoint list that is correct and works.


2nd is an Approval from SharePoint list. It sends out an approval to user (with Approval and Reject) however when clicking on either it just send the user to Microsoft Flow (Approval tab), suggesting that they create a approval.


What should happen is that an email is sent in either case to another user and teh sharePoint list is update to 'Approve' or 'Reject'.


Any ideas?

Could you post screenshots of your flow so we can see what's (not) happening. Thanks.

Hi @RobElliott I've uploaded grab of second flow.

Thanks for that. A couple of things I've noticed: the Start an Approval has now been replaced by Start and Wait for Approval (V2) and I'm not sure the old one still works which might be the main problem. Also, your approval and rejection emails are different: the rejected goes to one recipient but the aproval goes to somewhere different and the body of the emails isn't the same (I always try to keep them the same and just change Approved to Rejected). But try it with the new approval action and see if that helps. Come back if it doesn't and I'll have another look.
