On my Upload New Document list, I created customized columns to be filled out by users once they upload a document. On clicking "Save" it will trigger an approval process, if approved the item will be created in "Approved Submission" list. My issue is, the created item doesn't copy the information provided by the uploader when they filled-out the form. The table will only show "Title", "Created" and "Created By".

Hi @earlbrian , I believe you are you using the 'When a file/item is created' trigger for the flow. Since the custom columns are not filled at the time of file creation, those values are not available to the file creation trigger. Instead of sending the approval immediately after the trigger, you can insert a delay for a few minutes after the trigger, and then pull the item details again with a 'Get item' action. If users have filled the custom field details by the time 'Get item' runs, it will get those values. Hope this helps!
Yes, I'm using "When a file/item is created" trigger for the flow. How do I go about inserting the delay?
Apologies, I just started using this a few days ago to create a document library with automation for all our files.
