Get the timestamp information from an approval response

On Flow (email approval) when a user approves, I want to update the sharepoint list item column with the date and time of the approval. It works fine with static data, but how cn I get the date and time of approval?

Re: Get the timestamp information from an approval response

Hi Arbangara99,

I was able to replicate your scenario successfully on my SPO. I created a simple list with Title, Manager and Approved (date/time column). I used the 'Send SharePoint List item for approval' Flow but I added an extra action. Below is a screenshot of that action. I added an Update Item action and in that action updated the Approved field with Modified. Hope this helps!

Re: Get the timestamp information from an approval response

Hi Darogael, Thanks for your solution. That made my day!!

 

Now digging further, I see that when the approver approves, I use the field Modified by Email updated in the sharepoint, but it actually puts my email address instead of the user who originally approved it. Is there a way to get that information too?
