Created a Flow for Parallel Approval and after approval data is to be updated at SharePoint isn't working

I have designed a Flow with Multiple Approvals, after getting approved the approval status and approved comment are to be updated at SharePoint Location. There are 5 Parallel branch for Approvals among these 5 approval, 3 approvals response are getting updated at SharePoint, but rest 2 approvals are not getting updated at SharePoint even after approval was approved by reviewer. Kindly suggest solution for same:-

1) In Test run, after approval is approved by reviewer. Flow isn't working to next level.

2) After getting approval, reviewer response and comment is need to be updated at SharePoint. But isn't updating 

3) Facing this issue for 3 approvals, for rest 2 approvals (same flow and conditions used) flow is working and updating the information at SharePoint as well.

Hi @Harshikesharma,

 

The reason for the rest of 2 approval request not get a response and SharePoint items not update is each branch you added a Terminate action. If one of the approval response, current Flow run will stop, and the rest of approvals will invalid. So please delete these Terminate actions, if you want to update multiple SharePoint items, they are unnecessary.Screenshot 2020-10-20 160321.jpg

Kindly look into attached picture of designed Flow. There are 3 parllel workflow shown below, approval type is "everyone need to approve" is selected. So, far 2 of them are working properly and updating at SharePoint location after request is approved. While for the last one, it isn't working after approving it data is not reflected at SharePointCapture 5.PNG.Capture6.PNG
